Newport CBC has been praised by the Audit Commission over the way it handled an investigation into fraud by its employees, reports The Western Mail (p3).

The council's investigations, which revealed that 90 of its employees were making fraudulent claims which totalled more than£150,000, are to be used as a model for other authorities to combat fraud.

The authority has now launched a review of its benefits system to ensure such cheating can never be repeated and it is playing a central role in the next phase of the national fraud initiative.
