Northamptonshire Council has proposed radical service reductions in areas including care for vulnerable people as a response to its second 114 notice.

The insolvent council outlined plans at an emergency council meeting last night, which included cuts to services including those for adults and children, road maintenance and waste management.

A special full council meeting has been called for next Thursday to discuss the action plan, which the local authority has said will see radical service reductions and efficiencies to address its severe financial crisis.

The embattled council has projected £60m to £70m of savings will be required this financial year in order to achieve a balanced budget.
