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

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.
