A protest was held at Southampton Civic Centre yesterday over council plans to close its final two care homes in the city.

The demonstration was held ahead of a full council meeting which took place in the afternoon.


More than 70 jobs could be at risk and 75 residents relocated if plans go ahead.

The council said the proposed closures would save about £1.3m per year which it said could be put towards other care options.Councillors said they would listen to concerns made during a public consultation.

It was a book that you couldn't wait to get your hands on, taking in every word as you dived deeper into its chapters.

Now, months - or even years - later, it sits on the shelf after you forgot to take it back to the local library after its lease expired.

But fear the fine no longer, as Southampton City Council announces a chance to return any borrowed book without being billed.

Starting next week, the amnesty fortnight will attempt to boost the city's library stock, encouraging more people to use the service.
