Northamptonshire Council backs ‘radical’ service cuts

A Conservative-run council has voted to bring in drastic cuts – which will leave its services running at the bare legal minimum.

Northamptonshire County Council says it has a financial black hole which could grow to 180 million pounds within three years – and will have to hand back spending on social care and children’s services. One local Tory MP has warned that unless the Government acts soon, more councils will also run out of cash.
