Eight employees at Barking and Dagenham Council raked in more than £100,000 a year, figures reveal.
Chief executive Chris Naylor and three others received pay packages greater than £150,000 in 2016/17, according to a libertarian pressure group.
The TaxPayers’ Alliance, who compiled the figures, said Mr Naylor received £207,479 total remuneration that financial year—£40,829 in employer pension contributions on top of his £166,650 salary.
The next seven highest-paid employees, who were unnamed, took home £141,051 on average.
They were among more than 400 employees handed the bumper sums across London, the data show.

A spokesman for Barking and Dagenham Council branded the figures “out of date”.
