The Mail on Sunday reports that “Whitehall high-flyer” Antonia Romeo, reportedly tipped to become the first-ever female head of the Civil Service, was investigated in 2017 for bullying staff and misusing expenses. The paper says Mrs Romeo is a “leading contender” to replace the UK’s top civil servant Sir Mark Sedwill, who is standing down from his role in September. The Cabinet Office said in a statement the allegations were “thoroughly investigated and were dismissed on the basis there was no case to answer”.
