Cornwall Council's cabinet has approved a four-year budget strategy aimed at cutting spending by nearly £200m.

Cabinet members said the strategy was to save £196m between 2015-2019 and the council had to make cuts as government spending squeezes were continuing and demand for services was growing.

The Liberal Democrat-Independent coalition unitary authority has an annual budget of more than £1.1bn.

The full 123-seat council is to vote on the strategy on 25 November.
