Lincolnshire’s county councillors have voted to increase their allowances by 2.2 per cent, putting their basic allowance at more than £10,000 a year.

The increase will mean they receive an extra £222 a year.

UKIP councillors at the Conservative-controlled council had called for a 1 per cent decrease and Labour councillors abstained from the vote.
