Hundreds of jobs to be lost at Derbyshire county council

Sixteen hundred jobs are to go at Derbyshire County Council in a move to save more than £47m over the next year. The Labour-run council is also carrying out a complete review of its services.

It says some council buildings may have to be sold and some centres may close. It's now planning an overhaul of the way it works to be able to carry on fulfilling all its roles.
