Care-leaver's joy as council agrees £3k savings payout

A "goodwill payment" of £3,310 has been paid by Bridgend council to a foster care-leaver whose savings were not monitored.

It comes after the public services ombudsman for Wales asked it to pay the amount to Rob Johnson, 18, following an investigation which said monitoring of the savings was "inadequate".

The council said it took its role as corporate parents extremely seriously.

Mr Johnson said he was "over the moon" he will receive the payment.
