Jumping around the charities

"Ex-Save the Children chief executive Justin Forsyth has resigned from Unicef saying he does not want coverage of his past to `damage` the charities."

"Mr Forsyth faced three complaints of inappropriate behaviour towards female staff before leaving Save the Children, the BBC reported this week."

"He was accused of sending inappropriate texts and commenting on what young female staff were wearing."

"He said he `apologised unreservedly` to the three workers at the time..."

"The allegations come after Brendan Cox - the husband of murdered MP Jo Cox - quit two charities he set up in memory of his wife amid allegations of inappropriate behaviour."

"The Charity Commission said it had `extensive regulatory engagement` with Save the Children after allegations of misconduct and inappropriate behaviour were made against Mr Cox and Mr Forsyth between 2015 and 2016."
