Wyre Forest District Council 'to make £2m further savings'

Wyre Forest District Council must save a further £2m over the next two years, cabinet members say.

The council said it expects its budget to be cut by about 20% to under £11m, compared to the present figure of £12.8m.

Cabinet members met on Tuesday evening to discuss the proposals before councillors make a final decision next week.

The authority described its financial situation as "extremely challenging".

It has cut more than £3.6m since 2009.
