Three employees at Braintree District Council earn more than £100,000, topping a local “town hall rish list” compiled by the TaxPayers’ Alliance.

A pair of corporate directors and the chief executive at the council, who have not been named in the list, earned a six-figure salary or more in the 2012/2013 financial year, which are the latest figures available.

The TaxPayers’ Alliance’s data showed that two employees earned more than £100,000 but a spokesman for Braintree District Council said that it was actually three employees on the salary.
