Bristol Council: Tax payers' money topping up councillors' pensions

COUNCIL tax payers' money is being used to top up the pensions of nearly 90 councillors in the Bristol area.

The payments, which amount to a total of more than £200,000 a year, have been condemned by a retired local government worker who said the pension scheme should not be available to councillors.
