Hundreds of people have gathered outside Newcastle Civic Centre to protest against plans for £90 million in cuts to council services.
More than 1,300 jobs could be lost, and many services including swimming pools and libraries would also close as a result.
The protests came as councillors discussed how to make the savings, which amount to around a third of its budget over the next three years.
