Meanwhile, in a separate development, more details of the hotel bills paid by Suffolk council chiefs as they attended a conference in Dorset have come to light.

The Star has discovered that while Mrs Hill stayed at the �205-a-night Haven Hotel, in Sandbanks, colleagues from Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Borough Council were put up in far more modest hotels that cost less than half the price... and were closer to the venue of the last Local Government Association annual conference.
