Monmouthshire council will meet today to decide how they can make cuts to their budget.
Ideas suggested by councillors so far include dimming some street lights and raising the cost of school meals.

These included setting up a lottery, which could raise money for specific projects, increasing the price of school meals and reducing street sweepers.

Her family have now launched a campaign to raise awareness of the condition so other sufferers spot the signs earlier.

The infection is caused when usually harmless Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus bacteria, which live on the skin, invade the bloodstream and produce dangerous toxins.
This causes a sudden high fever, a massive drop in blood pressure resulting in dizziness and confusion, and occasionally vomiting and diarrhoea.
