Council pay revealed

More than 3000 council executives are being paid salary packages in excess of £100,000.

The Tax Payers Alliance who ran the report, reveals former Chief Executive of Hammersmith and Fulham Council, Geoff Alltimes, received the most, with a redundancy deal of nearly £300,000.

The study also showed that 47 Barnet Council employees were earning more than £100,000 a year - but the authority claims this is untrue.
