BBC survey suggests North-South social care divide


An early snapshot of the impact of spending cuts by local authorities across England can be seen in a BBC survey mapping the changes.

The survey of 268 councils looks at how much they plan to spend on services this year, from adult social care, to libraries and rubbish collection.

For some services the figures suggest a divided country with spending on adult social care falling in the north but rising in the south.
