Northamptonshire County Council: 'Radical' service cuts planned

Northamptonshire County Council: 'Radical' service cuts planned A cash-strapped local authority has proposed "radical service reductions" to tackle its financial crisis.

Northamptonshire County Council said it must save up to £70m by March, and held an emergency meeting on Wednesday.

Its "action plan", revealed on Thursday, involves possible cuts in adult social care, children's services, road maintenance and school transport.

Council leader Matthew Golby said the plan "includes rigorous controls on spending, recruitment and contracts".

The proposals will be discussed at a full council meeting on 9 August. BBC Northampton
