'Up to 900 more jobs' to go at Manchester City Council

Help

Manchester City Council has confirmed up to 900 jobs could be cut as the authority tries to make savings of about £80m over the next two years.

The city has seen its budget cut by almost £170m since its government funding was reduced last year.

Two-thousand posts have already been lost through budget cuts.

Richard Bilton reports from another town looking at public service cutbacks, the town of Whitehaven in Cumbria.
