Government set to unveil UK cuts
Chancellor George Osborne is preparing to reveal the biggest programme of cuts in the UK for decades, in his long-awaited spending review.
Average budget reductions of 25% to most Whitehall departments are expected alongside welfare cuts, following months of negotiations with ministers.
Reports suggest nearly 500,000 public sector jobs will go by 2014-15.
