A total of 300 posts are set to be cut at Blackpool Council as it seeks to save £14.1m in the next financial year.

The council executive will be asked to approve the package which includes 50 compulsory redundancies, 60 voluntary and the rest to go via natural wastage.

Discussions have been taking place with trade unions and some staff have been told their jobs are at risk.

The council said compulsory losses could be avoided through early retirement or voluntary redundancy.

Council leader of the Labour-run authority Simon Blackburn warned in the autumn that the council faced a difficult few years.
