Vice Chancellor of Bath University steps down.

Vice Chancellor of Bath University steps down.

The vice-chancellor of the University of Bath, facing accusations of excessive pay, has stepped down.

Dame Prof Glynis Breakwell, the UK's highest paid vice-chancellor with a salary of £468,000, had become the focus of criticisms of rising pay among university leaders.

Lecturers had complained that her pay had risen much more rapidly than the salaries of university staff.

Dame Glynis said she had "served the university to the best of my ability" and would now take a sabbatical before formally retiring in 2019.
