In relation to a news story which was published today, a spokesperson from Beamish Museum, said: “We can confirm that a member of staff has been suspended pending a disciplinary hearing. It is important to say that suspension is not an implication of any wrongdoing. Until the process has concluded it would not be appropriate to comment further.
“However, we would like to reassure people that this situation will not affect the operation of the museum in any way, and our number one priority – as always – will continue to be providing an excellent experience for our visitors.”
