Theresa May has defended local government cuts, blaming "tough decisions" on the "mess of the public finances left by the last Labour government".
Somerset Council says it plans to save around £28m in the next 18 months, but the Prime Minister insists they have been ensuring "more funding is available to local councils".
The council agreed to a four-year funding settlement in 2016 which, according to Mrs May, provides them with, "an extra £30 million until 2019/2020".
Earlier this month leader of Somerset Council, David Fothergill, announced they are "at the very sharp end of austerity" and would be making dramatic cuts.
The proposals were approved at a cabinet meeting on 12 September.
Controversial proposals to reduce funding for the Young Carers' Service have been deferred until next year following our report on the impact on young carers.
Services likely to see reduced funding include social care and the Citizens Advice Bureau.
The number of roads gritted on the Winter gritting route will also be cut.
