Liverpool's Lord Mayor leads spending cuts march

Liverpool's Lord Mayor is leading a march through the city centre in protest at government spending cuts.

Politicians from all parties, community and voluntary groups and public sector workers joined the march from the Anglican Cathedral.

Council leader Joe Anderson urged people to stage the protest after he delivered details of how the council would make £91m of savings this year.

He told the BBC's Ed Thomas he thought the level of funding was "desperately unfair to the people of this city".
