Southampton Council accused of planning more cuts

Southampton City Council has been accused of drawing up plans for a further reduction of its workforce on the day mass pay cuts take effect.

The Unite union said it had seen a leaked report on council spending, which said a quarter of the 4,300-strong workforce could be cut.

The council denied it had any such plans.
