East Lindsey district councillors have decided to forfeit an increase in their annual “pay”.

An independent remuneration panel recommended that the basic allowance should rise by £180 to £4,370 per annum.

But the authority’s 60 members felt the hike would be inappropriate at a time of financial pressure for residents and voted against it at a full council meeting.
