Hampshire County Council leader Ken Thornber has been outlining the authority's budget plans for the next financial year. It includes spending £165m creating 8,000 new school places to meet the growing demand and get rid of temporary classrooms currently in use.
About £160m will be spent on transport, £6.5m creating 70 child social workers and £4m on elderly care. The council says it can invest in services - when others are making cuts - because its made savings over the past few years.
