Hundreds of people are protesting against budget cuts proposed by Birmingham City Council in the city centre today (14 February) as the plans are taken to Cabinet.

The council had originally planned on slashing £10 million from its 2017/2018 budget, but after a consultation and protests, this figure was reduced down to £5 million.

The protesters, made up of community groups and charities are concerned at the continued threat of proposed cuts to supported housing and related services.
