A race relations director sacked because he was white agreed to accept reduced compensation after the NOrth Yorkshire Racial Equality Council said it would appeal against an award of 8000 pounds damages by an industrial tribunal which found that John Onyett, 54, of Leeds, had been wrongfully dismissed from his 20,000 pounds a year job. He has now accepted 6,000 pounds, saying he could not afford to wait for an appeal to be settled.
