Longleat boss in mystery suspension as investigation launched
LONGLEAT Safari Park’s chief executive David Bradley has been temporarily suspended while a review is being carried out.
Mr Bradley, former director of Legoland, has headed up the safari and adventure park following the retirement of Lord Bath and the succession of Viscount of Weymouth Ceawlin. Longleat has confirmed that Mr Bradley has been temporarily suspended and that an interim team is currently running the operation.
Since Mr Bradley’s appointment in 2009 the safari park has seen a number of new attractions opening such as the £2million Jungle Kingdom, the Monkey Temple and the Hunters of the Sky.
A row recently broke out when access to the park used by hikers, cyclists and dog walkers was restricted. A number of public meetings were held to resolve the issue and eventually passes were issued to local people.
Mr Bradley has also been at the forefront of the acquisition of two luxury hotels in the Wiltshire and Bath area, the Bishopstrow Hotel and Spa and the Homewood Park Hotels and Spa.
