Councillors will tonight be asked to approve £450,000 expenditure for repairs after reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (Raac) was found to be present in the roof.

The material, which has led to the closure of public buildings across the country, has been found in the 45-year-old council headquarters.

Wolverhampton Council spokesman Oliver Bhurrut said the 45-year-old building had been surveyed for the material as part of a review of all council assets.
