A meeting will be held today calling for the dismissal of Pembrokeshire council's Chief Executive Bryn Parry Jones.

The CEO is currently being investigated by Police after he was paid £45,000 which should've been included as pension contributions.

Last month 200 union members turned out to protest against what they describe as a "catalogue of failures and concerns" while under his leadership.

Cashier Tracy Jones, 33, made false transactions for four years at the Halifax bank in Abergavenny. The court heard she made 67 transactions, taking cash from two victims - one has Alzheimer's and the other was 86 years old.

Jones, who had worked for the bank for 13 years, was caught out when the 86-year-old woman reported a number of unusual transactions.

Jones was found to have been the cashier involved and suspicion of investigators fell on her. CCTV was played to her showing a time she had accessed her elderly victim's account and withdrawn £2,000 without her permission or without her being present.

She later admitted stealing £4,445 from the customer with dementia and pleaded guilty on a basis to taking more than £50,000 from the 86-year-old. Both women have been reimbursed by the bank.

The only previous conviction Jones had was a caution for possessing amphetamines in 2010. Jones, from Llwynu Lane in Abergavenny, was jailed for 16 months.
