The town’s political representatives had a basic allowance rate of £5,825 during the last financial year.

While this is a slight increase on the £5,767 paid in 2013/14 - the figures, revealed by the TaxPayers Alliance, mean Hartlepool Borough Council has the lowest allowances in the North East.

In 2012/13 expenses of £7,694 were claimed, by 2013/14 this had dropped to £1,491 and even further savings were made during the last financial year bringing the total to £1,111.
