Taxpayers paid out more than £2,300 a month for a council chief executive on a £195,000 a year salary to drive around in a luxury Porsche, it was revealed today.

Chief executive Bryn Parry-Jones’ high-powered office car was leased at more than £28,000 a year, and funded by taxpayers in Pembrokeshire.

Then, the cash-strapped council had to pay £8,600 to end the hire contract on the Porsche Panamera when Mr Parry-Jones, 62, quit his post last October.
