Creative Scotland pay-offs cost £110k

THE departures of two senior Creative Scotland staff has cost the taxpayer more than £110,000.

Andrew Dixon, former chief executive of the arts body, was paid £80,000 as part of a compromise agreement, while creative development director Venu Dhupa's was paid £34,000 to leave the organisation.

Mr Dixon stepped down last year after a six-month spell in charge that saw him heavily criticised by the arts community.
