More job losses at City of York Council

More than 200 jobs are set to be lost at City of York Council over the next two years. Council bosses say they will lose an extra 2% of funding in 2014/15 on top of the reductions it was already facing.

The authority needs to save £9 million next year and £12 million the following two years. The council said it would do all it could to avoid making compulsory redundancies.
