There are fresh calls tonight for mass resignations at cash strapped Northamptonshire council as the financial crisis starts putting public services at risk.
The Council has already banned almost all new spending and agreed to sell off its recently built headquarters.
The authority is looking to cut around 30 million pounds from next year's budget, but today's vote on the spending plan had to be postponed after auditors said the sums didn't add up.
The cash-strapped authority says the sale and leaseback agreement will help fund the transformation of its services.
Council leaders in Northamptonshire are today preparing a response to a damning Government report into their finances.
Ms Smith criticised the 'vicious attacks by four local MP’s' who are 'using her as a scapegoat.'
