Derbyshire's mobile library service faces axe

Derbyshire could lose its mobile library service, as part of the county council's plans to save £157m over the next four years.

A public consultation is being carried out into the proposals, which include taking all 10 library vehicles off the road to save more than £700,000 a year.

The Labour-run authority announced it would have to make the savings in October.

BBC East Midlands Today's James Roberson spoke to county councillor Dave Allen.
