Walkout planned over Caerphilly council pay row

Workers at Caerphilly council will stage a walkout on Monday over a decision to award a 27,000 thousand pound pay rise to the chief executive at the council.

It's angered local government workers as they say they've had their pay frozen for three years.

The council says the pay meets an independent external scheme and that it was presented to full council with no complaints at the time.
