Senior councillors in Swindon have agreed a budget that's slashed £15m from their £130m total spend.

It will include less support for the elderly and cutting its bus subsidy. It still has to be approved by full council at their meeting on 21st February.

The council has less funding from central Government and even more savings will have to be made next year.
