Councils have warned that local authorities across England are being "pushed to breaking point" after the announcement of a new round of Government cuts which will force them to slice an estimated £2.6 billion from their budgets for next year.
The main grant from the government to local councils in the Anglia region is being cut by £323 million next year - a reduction of nearly 14%.
However the government says that the overall reduction in spending power for English councils will be 1.8%, with no council facing a loss of more than 6.4%.
The "spending power" figure includes other income that local councils receive like NHS grants, council tax and business rates and local fees and charges.
The Local Government Association said that the provisional finance settlement for 2015/16 amounted to an 8.8% cut in core central Government funding, bringing to 40% the total reduction in support since the coalition came to power in 2010.
Temperatures throughout the Anglia region have peaked at 14C this afternoon, making it the warmest day of December 2014 so far.

It will feel colder on Friday as temperatures return to average for the time of year. 7C is the typical daytime high in East Anglia in mid-December.
