Birmingham City Council has announced that its new budget has been approved, despite protesters gathering outside the Council House in Birmingham today to protest against public spending cuts.
At the meeting, £100million worth of cuts to welfare and public services were discussed. Two Liberal Democrats and one Conservative councillors put forward amendments, all of which were rejected.
The meeting was disrupted for 10 minutes when protestors made their way into the Council House.
Cuts will come into force in April 2013.
