Unions in Telford rallies over cuts plans

Three rallies in Shropshire were organised by public sector workers to highlight the "devastating effect" they say proposed cuts could have on employment in the county.

Two rallies organised by Unite and the Public and Commercial Services Union were held in Telford.

Shropshire and Telford Trades Union Council sponsored a meeting later.

The government spending review will outline the cutbacks it intends to make as it tries to cut the deficit.

The lunchtime events were held at Cordingley Hall and Meeting Point House.

An evening meeting opposing academy schools took place at Telford's Civic Offices.
