Six Bridgend councillors suspended over merger vote

Six Bridgend Labour councillors have been suspended from the party group on the council after they failed to support plans for a merger with the Vale of Glamorgan.

Keith Edwards, Ross Thomas, Gareth Wyn Davies, Edith Hughes and Gareth Phillips voted against merging.

Councillor Martin Jones abstained from November's vote.

But the application for both councils to merge was rejected by Public Services Minister Leighton Andrews.
