The Birmingham Post (p3) reports that leaders of the city council have been accused of 'putting their snouts in the trough' in discussing giving themselves bumper pay rises of up to £5,000 a year.

The paper says that responsibility rewards for key jobs would be in addition to the basic pay received by Birmingham city councillors - now £6,500 a year and rising to £7,980 next October.

The deal, says the Birmingham Post, would increase the wages of city leader Theresa Stewart by about £5,000 to £18,540 a year.

City chief executive Michael Lyons pointed out the pay package was in line with the recommendations of an independent panel.
