£146m axed from council budgets in Wales

Councils in Wales have been told they will get £146m less in 2015-16 from the Welsh government.

Public Services Minister Leighton Andrews said local authorities will get £4.12bn in their block grants - an overall cut of 3.4% on this year.

Ministers insist none of Wales' 22 councils will see an individual cut of more than 4.5%.

BBC Wales political editor Nick Servini reports.
