Birmingham CAB office 'may have to shut'

Officials at Birmingham's Citizens Advice Bureau have said they could be forced to close another office.

The charity, which has a shortfall of £120,000 through legal aid and council cuts, warned the situation had got worse leading to three possible closures.

Citizens Advice chief executive Yvonne Davies said she was currently in a "positive dialogue" with the city council about funding.

Karl Wilding, from the National Council for Voluntary Organisation, said people will still need advice and will go to local authorities for it, who will end up spending "more money in the long run".

They both spoke to Elizabeth Glinka from Midlands Today.
