Public should 'vent anger' at cuts in Manchester


The people of Manchester should be "vent their anger" at massive cuts forced on the city by the government, says the leader of the city council.

Sir Richard Leese, leader of the Labour-run authority, was speaking after detailing how it will make £109m of savings over the next financial year.

Councillor Leese blamed a "massive" reduction in its funding from central government for the council's 2,000 job losses as well as widespread cuts to services and the closure of libraries and swimming pools.
