The millionaire marquis of Bristol is to pay less council tax than his gardener, the Mail on Sunday reports (p6).

The gardener, who earns £12,000 a year, faces a bill of £680 for his three bedroomed cottage on the estate where he lives with his family. But the marquis will pay only £439 at his 18th century mansion Ickworth Hall, because he is single. He also qualifies for transitional relief from St Edmundsbury BC, the paper reports.

Ickworth Hall has been placed in the top band, H, but the cottage is only one band below it, in band G for properties worth £160,000 to £320,000.
