Liverpool City Council leader on 'pain' of job cuts

Up to 1,500 jobs are to go at Liverpool city council as part of extensive budget cuts.

The Labour-run council needs to reduce staff numbers by the end of March 2013 and said compulsory redundancies would be necessary.

The council's leader, Joe Anderson, said he "also felt the pain" and said "we aren't deficit deniers, we want fairness".
