The report suggested this dramatic downfall was engineered to push along the controversial deal with developers Firoka.

But chairman of the trading company, Cllr Matt Cooke, believes the new appointment will help to rebuilt it: "These are tremendously exciting times for the palace and Rebecca Kane's appointment is testament to the work that has been done over the last year to secure the future.
"We now have to build on that work and take the next positive steps forward and I am confident Rebecca will make an enormous contribution to the culture and drive of the palace and its trading company and we welcome her to the team.
