An angry exchange at the County Council budget meeting after Councillor James Airey, leader of the conservative group, has described the budget plans as a comic book, saying it includes:
"Fireman Sam losing his job, Bob the builder having to pay to park his van to buy a pie and Dennis the Menace's Mum and Dad having to pay £1400 a year to send him to college."
There was shouting on both sides, with Councillor Airey questioned about when he was going to come up with his saving plans.
