As the lobby against fat cat pay for failed executives reaches fever pitch, it has been revealed that Helen Weir received the enormous payout when her job at subsidiary B&Q was moved to Kingfisher’s head office in London.

Such bonuses, along with the revelation that Sir Geoff Mulcahy, Kingfisher’s chairman, will earn a final salary pension of £790,000 a year, has angered trade unions.

Data compiled by Income Data Services shows that, on average, executive pay has risen by 25%, the Independent reported.

Trade union body Amicus labelled such an increase ‘obscene’.
