More cuts recommended for Middlesbrough

The mayor of Middlesbrough put forward recommendations for cuts across the town yesterday evening.

They recommendations will be part of savings of 45 million pounds that the council has to make between now and 2016.

If the proposals are passed next month, there would be reductions in services providing for children, people with disabilities and older people.

However, proposals for Hemlington Library to close, as well as an end to green waste collections, are likely to be withdrawn.
