Job losses can't be ruled out at struggling council, its leader's said, after admitting their finances are in a mess.
Auditors have warned Redditch Borough Council it could "run out" of money in two years if it doesn't sort out its budget.
In a recent report, they said the authority had to take "urgent action" to safeguard its future as, at the moment, it's on course by 2021 to be spending £30,000 a week more than it receives in income.
The council's leader, Matthew Dormer, said he's in urgent talks about the situation and council tax may have to be increased.
He told BBC Hereford and Worcester the problem in front of them was "very, very large" and job losses would be an "absolute worst case scenario".
