Aberdeen City Council has announced that it will set a balanced budget for the coming year, with no new cuts.

The local authority said that £15.5m of savings which were previously announced will go ahead as planned.

However, no job losses will be required to achieve the target.

The council has suffered severe financial problems in recent times. Since 2008, the local authority has had to cut spending by about £100m.
