1:26pm 14th February 2013

A majority of Dorset Councillors have backed proposals to cut nearly £11 million from the budget in the latest round of cuts.

County Hall was the scene of a lively debate this morning (Thursday 14th February).

Leader Angus Campbell started proceedings by outlining the proposed cost cutting measures to his fellow councillors.

The £10.9 million cutbacks will hit local services and be made over the next 2 years (2013/14).

A number of Lib Dem councillors voiced concern over the cuts.

Mr Campbell warned his colleagues the County Council needed to find a further £46million in savings over the next three years.
