Female executives at Redditch BC outnumber their male counterparts by two to one, reports the Birmingham Post (p3).

Six of the nine top jobs at the council are held by women. It is understood to be the highest number of female managers employed by any council in the UK.

Katherine Kerswell, director of the council, said: 'We all work together directly and the atmosphere at meetings has definitely changed with the appointment of more female directors.

'People are much more willing to participate and contribute and they are a lot more fun. The team is very effective because women are good at communicating. If a problem arises it is sorted out immediately because people are not afraid to speak up.'

Paul Patten, area director at the council and one of the three male executives, said: 'I think it is a good thing that more women are in senior management positions because it gives a better representation of society.'
