He has been in that position for a year and has asked to be relieved from his duties, as the stressful nature of the job was impacting on him negatively.

This has not been an easy decision, but for the past few months the stressful nature of the job has caused me to re-evaluate both my position at the station and my life choices. I’ve been stressed and unwell for some time and I’ve made this decision in my own best interests and that of the station,” commented Maggs at the time.
