Fraser Inglis: Kent Union vice sports president sacked for 'gross misconduct'

By Lydia Chantler-Hicks

The vice-president of sports at the University of Kent's Students' Union has been dismissed over claims of "gross misconduct". 

Fraser Inglis was elected as one of Kent Union's five full-time paid officers last year.

But on Friday, a disciplinary panel decided he should not be allowed to continue in his role.

A Kent Union spokesman said: "Following a comprehensive investigation, a Kent Union Disciplinary Panel met last week and concluded that Fraser Inglis should be dismissed for gross misconduct."

The Union has declined to release details surrounding Inglis' dismissal, and did not confirm whether it was related to incidents that occurred on campus. 

"We expect all of our full time elected officers to uphold the highest standards of behaviour and will take action against anyone who falls below these standards," said a spokesman.

"Kent Union will continue to support our 55 sports clubs and the 3,000+ students who are members of them, with the responsibility for Sports reallocated between the Kent Union President and the Vice-President (Sports).

"We are dedicated to ensuring that the work we do to support sport at Kent does not suffer as a result of Fraser’s departure."
