Hundreds protest over possible cuts to social care services

Hundreds of disabled, elderly and vulnerable residents have protested on the steps of Birmingham City Council to oppose a possible cut in social care services. The council needs to save around £20 million from its adult care budget, which it says is part of cuts across all areas.
