Row over Bridgend council's staff pay freeze plan

A row has broken out over a council's decision to propose a pay freeze for all staff other than the lowest paid.

Bridgend council says it will save £1m and help protect jobs and services.

It is the only council out of the 22 in Wales which has not negotiated pay rises with unions.

Now the First Minister Carwyn Jones, who is the local assembly member, says he will get involved to try and resolve the dispute.

James Williams reports.
