100 councillors and town hall officials on a taxpayer funded junket

MORE than 100 councillors and town hall officials sparked fury yesterday by flying off to the French Riviera on an expensive junket as their cash-starved authorities plan to cut millions of pounds from front-line services.

Councils were branded hypocritical for sending their staff to the millionaire’s playground for a four-day networking conference, leaving taxpayers back to pick up the bill.

News of the taxpayer-funded jaunt comes at a time when public services are being cut around the country.
