Northamptonshire County Council approved an action plan for “radical” cuts to services

A cash-strapped council has approved massive cuts to jobs and services in a bid to tackle a funding shortfall of £70m.

Northamptonshire County Council backed the action plan to reduce spending during a crisis meeting.

Children’s services, road maintenance and waste management are among the areas facing “radical” cuts.

Other councils face similar issues, with East Sussex planning service cuts to a legal minimum “core offer”.
