An honesty box used by councillors to pay for tea and biscuits has had a lock slapped on it after claims cash was being pinched.

The kitty tin is located in the members’ lounge in Falkirk Municipal Buildings, where elected representatives can relax before and after debates in the adjacent chamber.

A long standing practice saw councillors pay for the price of a cup of tea or snack by leaving coins in the box and taking change if necessary.
