Caerphilly Council leader Harry Andrews will face a motion of no confidence in a meeting today.

The motion states that the council has no confidence in Cllr Andrews after it was revealed by the Wales Audit Office (WAO) that the council had acted unlawfully when it awarded pay rises for 21 senior officers.

The matter will be discussed at a full council meeting today. The investigation by the WAO led to the suspension of Caerphilly Council's Chief Executive Anthony O'Sullivan.
