Bristol's new Mayor announced how he planned to balance the city's budget today - and it'll mean hundreds of job losses, cuts in services and the closure of a range of facilities across the city. George Ferguson unveiled a package of proposals this morning.
These are the key recommendations:
Thirty five million pounds is being cut from next year's budget.
More than 320 jobs will be lost.
Council tax bills will go up by around 2 per cent - that's 26 pounds a year for the average household.
Unions have condemned the proposals, but the new Mayor says the cuts are essential. Richard Payne reports.
