Dame Judith Mayhew, provost of King's College, Cambridge, has rejected claims that bursar Roger Salmon was suspended last week because of the college's financial position. She told The THES that much of what had been written in newspapers about the suspension was inaccurate. "I am sorry that (the story) was produced by students leaking stuff and putting two and two together. It has caused great distress and I am deeply unhappy," she said. Mr Salmon remains suspended.
