KPMG said Howarth, whose profile has been removed from the company website, has appealed the decision. The firm did not comment further on the nature of the alleged misconduct.

Howarth told the Financial Times, which first reported the story, he was “surprised” at the announcement as the decision was under appeal.

“I did not believe that the process was fair or would lead to a just outcome. There is no complainant and there were no formal allegations pursued by anyone,” he said.

Power cut probe to investigate whether electricity firms breached licences.
Ofgem has launched an investigation into whether National Grid and other electricity companies breached their licence conditions after a major power cut earlier this month. The regulator - which has the power to fine the firms up to 10% of UK turnover - said it would focus on whether the the Grid met its requirements to hold sufficient back-up power as well as how separate generation and distribution companies met their obligations. It announced the investigation at the same time as it published National Grid's interim report into the power failure on 9 August, which caused widespread disruption.
