Council chiefs facing budget cuts of £18m have held a Twitter debate with residents on where the axe should fall.

The debate, between 14:00 BST and 16:00 BST on Monday, is part of Flintshire's Big Budget Conversation.

Council leader Aaron Shotton and chief executive Colin Everett hosted the social media discussion.

The authority has warned it has to make "big choices" as it faces cuts of up to 4.5% in Welsh government funding.

People could be forced to pay for some services or see them scrapped, it said.
