Manchester mayoral hopeful Andy Burnham has accused the government of leaving the city short of £1 billion in public funding.
Mr Burnham, who plans to run for mayor of what the Tories claim will be a Northern powerhouse, has written to Chancellor George Osborne insisting more resources are needed.
According to a report in The Observer, Mr Burnham wrote:
Far from fixing our roof while the sun was shining, you are about to hand over the keys to a powerhouse with a £1 billion hole in it.
If you want to give the North more than a clever slogan, you must now put your money where your mouth is.
He claimed the shortfall is made up of a reduction in the central government grant to Manchester, NHS deficits, and cuts to public services such as the police.
A government spokesman said: "The Northern powerhouse is a long-term strategy which is giving real power to the great cities and counties of the North West.
"The work to ensure that the North becomes a powerhouse for our economy again is not even two years old, but the reality is Manchester is already seeing early progress."
The woman is described as being around 50 years old with short spikey purple hair.Read the full story ›
