WIGAN'S director of education, Bob Clark, is to take charge temporarily of the education service in neighbouring Liverpool. Liverpool's previous director, Frank Cogley, has taken early retirement after a critical inspection report on the education authority. Liverpool council decided to appoint Mr Clark, aged 51, until the recruitment of a permanent official in the autumn.
