Police to examine Caerphilly council chief's pay rise

The way a council "unlawfully" awarded its chief executive a £27,000 pay rise is to be reviewed by police.

Avon and Somerset Police confirmed they had been asked by Gwent Police to look at the Wales Audit Office findings on Caerphilly council.

It emerged hours after the release of the report, which said the council's actions over Anthony O'Sullivan had been "unlawful on a number of grounds".

A council spokesman said earlier in the day that it was considering the report.

Political correspondent Tomos Livingstone reports.
