A London Council has announced plans to pay a minimum wage of nine pounds an hour to all its employees.
Barking and Dagenham says that it's the first local authority in the whole of the UK to guarantee that level of wage - nearly three pounds more than the national minimum wage (which is £6.19 for adults over the age of 21) and 45 pence more than the so-called living wage (which stands at £8.55 in London).
