Fossil fuel investment can't go on, says Monmouthshire councillor

A council has called for the fund that manages its pensions to withdraw an estimated £245m it has invested in fossil fuels.

Monmouthshire council unanimously voted for the Greater Gwent (Torfaen) Fund to make "an ordered withdrawal" at the "earliest opportunity".

Fund managers said a review into "responsible investment" was "ongoing".

Martyn Groucutt, a Monmouthshire county councillor, said it was time for a change.
