The Vale Council has this evening lost a vote to get its budget for 2019-20 through at a full council meeting.
The Conservative-Independent administration had proposed an increase in council tax of 4.9 per cent, but only eighteen councillors voted in favour of the proposal, with 25 against.
All the parties agreed that the UK and Welsh Governments needed to re-examine the way local government is funded.
