Charities 'could face cuts of up to £5.5bn'

The charity sector is facing local and national government funding cuts of between £1bn and £5.5bn in the current financial year, a report suggests.

The leaked report, obtained by the Labour Party, was carried out by an umbrella organisation which said the situation had worsened since it had compiled it last March.

The Cabinet Office said it did not consider the figures to be reliable.
