Tom Henderson has been removed as the CEO of Helston charity Shelterbox.

Bosses have told Pirate FM that the decision was unanimous and made by the board.

An appeal process is on-going.

The organisation has released this statement:

"The Board of ShelterBox Trust can confirm that Tom Henderson is no longer CEO of ShelterBox. The decision to remove him from the role was unanimous. There is an on-going appeal process, and as we do not wish to prejudice any outcome, and to maintain fairness to all involved, we will not make any further comment. A process has already begun to find a new CEO, with John Leach (previously Chief Operating Officer) acting as CEO in the interim period.

"We can however assure everyone that our operations and day to day management continue unhindered, with a very successful open day held over the weekend, and on-going operations to deliver aid underway in the Philippines, we will continue to help thousands of families worldwide affected by disaster providing them with Shelter, Warmth and Dignity."
