Staffordshire County Council has said it may have to make up to 500 job losses due to government budget cuts.

The council said it would receive £10m less in the next financial year and planned to make up the shortfall from its reserves in the first instance.

Philp Atkins, leader of the Conservative-run council said most of the posts would be lost through retirement and voluntary redundancy.

He said the cuts were not expected to affect council services.
