THE boss of a council forced to apologise for the tragic Arthur Labinjo-Hughes case failings is getting a six-figure pay-off.
Solihull chief executive Nick Page also oversaw a dramatic decline in its child services.
But officials are secretly negotiating a £100,000 goodbye as he is quietly allowed to quit,.
An insider branded the settlement “absolutely disgusting” and said: “Taxpayers will be sickened.”

Page confessed at the time the council had “failed in our duty of care to Arthur”.
He admitted to MPs grilling him later it would be seen as “inappropriate” to draw his full £200,000 salary.

Page had been off with stress since last month, we understand.
