The chief executive of Caerphilly council has been suspended as police investigate the way he was awarded a £25,000 pay rise last year.

The council has already changed its mind on the pay rise, but this week auditors said they had still acted unlawfully.

Political correspondent Tomos Livingstone spoke to Jamie Owen on BBC Wales Today.
