People living in Pembrokeshire are facing a 4.5% rise in their council tax bill during 2015-16.

Councillors voted on the increase - a rise of £34.49 for the average band D property - to help reach the overall budget of £207.3m which it needs to deliver local services.

It aims to make £12.3m of savings after the loss of a Welsh government grant.

Some £160,000 is to be budgeted towards rolling out free wi-fi in town centres in the county during the year.
