Tax increases for 'super council'

Councillors in Cornwall have agreed an average 2.6% council tax rise to help fund the county's new "super council".

Cornwall Council, as the new unitary authority will be known, will replace the seven district councils and existing county council in April.

Councillors meeting earlier agreed a 438.7m annual budget for the new authority.

The council tax rise will amount to an extra 23.83 a year on a Band B property.
