Councils warn frontline services could be affected

Two councils in the West Country are warning frontline services will have to face further cutbacks - because of multi-million pound holes in their budgets.

Cornwall Council has revealed it will have £24m fewer to deliver services in the next financial year and that is on top of £19m of savings already planned for this year.

Plymouth City Council is facing a £65m shortfall.

The council leader, Tudor Evans, says it will have a devastating impact.
