WPP 's ( WPP ) former CEO Martin Sorrell's pay arrangements are opposed by more than a quarter of the advertising and public relations firm's shareholders, according to a report from Sky News.

The investors have cast their votes against the pay report to be discussed at Wednesday's annual general meeting, the report said.

Up to 20% of shareholders also oppose the re-election of WPP chairman Roberto Quarta to the board, the report said.

Sorrell quit WPP after the board opened an investigation into an allegation of personal misconduct which Sorrell has denied.
