Councils at war over 'power grab'

The leader of Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council claims Warwickshire County Council is launching a "grab for power".

Denis Harvey said a county council plan which could see all councils in Warwickshire scrapped and replaced with just one is an attempt by the county to take control of the districts and boroughs.

But the leader of Warwickshire County Council Izzi Seccombe said the proposal would be about saving money.
