Call for probe into sport body

A ROW between the Scottish Gymnastics Association (SGA) and Sportscotland deepened as SGA officials called for a parliamentary inquiry into the governing body.

The SGA also called for the resignation of Sportscotland chief executive Stewart Harris amid claims the organisation has failed to communicate and provide a duty of care.

It comes after Sportscotland withdrew the SGA's funding following a report into unfair dismissal claims by two SGA employees which alleged bullying and chaotic leadership.

SGA president Lynn Milne said the organisation was left with no choice. A spokesman for Sportscotland said: "We had concerns about SGA for some time."
