'Claw back' bonus bid by Dyfed-Powys police commissioner

The Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner is trying to claw back thousands of pounds paid out to senior staff for staying in their jobs.

Christopher Salmon says £150,000 was awarded to chief officers in "retention bonuses" between 2009 and 2012.

BBC Wales has discovered that no other police force in Wales has this type of incentive.

Lawyers acting for those involved say all the payments were made in good faith.

Abigail Neal reports.
