A LIVEWIRE coach has received a final warning after calling children offensive names.

A number of parents complained about the swimming coach, who works at Orford Hub, after their children reported his words.

A LiveWire spokesman said: “After receiving a complaint, we investigated this matter swiftly and thoroughly. Unfortunately, in this circumstance, it appears that one of the younger coaches supporting the performance training squad failed to meet the high standards of responsibility we demand of everyone working within LiveWire.

“The team member has since apologised to the children and we have taken action accordingly.”
