Hundreds of people joined a protest against council cuts in Leicester today. The local authority says it needs to save £150 million pounds due to what it calls 'savage' government cuts.
Unions say some of the most vulnerable in the city will be hardest hit by the cuts including children and the elderly. Leicester City Council say they are trying to protect frontline services but the cuts will inevitably have an impact. Rajiv Popat was at the protest and sent this report.
