Councillors meet to discuss social work spending in D&G

Councillors will meet to discuss the financial management of social services in Dumfries and Galloway.

Members of the Council's Social Work Committee will be presented with a report compiled by external auditors, which revealed a series of failings.

The investigation was carried out following worries about a series of overspends and local MP Russell Brown says the department isn't fit for purpose.
