1600 jobs to be cut at Derbyshire County Council

Derbyshire County Council has announced plans to cut 1600 jobs and a complete review of the services it offers. The Labour-run administration says it needs to find £157 million over five years after the Government reduced its funding.

Some council buildings may have to be sold and services reduced or reviewed. The new Labour administration - only in office for four months - will have to consider cutbacks in every area of the council. It comes after similar announcements in Nottinghamshire.
