THE man who will be Oxfordshire County Council's new director of adult social services announced he will leave his current job yesterday.

Stephen Chandler is currently in charge of adult social services at Somerset County Council.

Mr Chandler will replace Kate Terroni, who left the county council for a new job at the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in May.

Oxfordshire County Council was asked to confirm Mr Chandler's appointment.

Mrs Terroni was first appointed to her former role in Oxfordshire in June 2016.
