A key Portsmouth City Council meeting on budget cuts had to be temporarily stopped because of protests.
Demonstrators against proposed council cuts to domestic violence services in Portsmouth let off confetti in the chamber and chanted until they were removed.
The council has to find £11m of savings this year - and had proposed cutting funding to domestic abuse services by £130k. Today councillors announced that funding would be found to continue the service for this year at least.
A local tax rise of the maximum 3.99% for the next four years is also being proposed, as are cuts to the fire service.
