Sedgemoor District CouncilNew figures published this week show district councillors have claimed £328,015 of expenses in the past year, a small increase of just 3.7 per cent on the previous year.

The full list of claims made by councillors in the Burnham area has been published online by here.

The highest total claimed by a local councillor came from Brent Knoll's Bob Filmer (£9,048.49), who attends a high number of meetings in his role as chairman of the council's planning committee.
