East Riding of Yorkshire Council was due to decide whether to award pay rises of£36,000 to its chief executive and up to£20,000 for directors this week.

There has been protest at the rises which would take the salary of chief executive Darryl Stephenson to£140,000 and those of some directors to£98,000.

The Labour Party, the smallest of the three main parties controlling the hung council, initially supported the increases, but has now thrown its weight behind the protesters and called a special council meeting to discuss the issue.

The pay rise follows a 5.8% rise council tax and budget cuts of£4.5m.
