Northamptonshire County Council crisis meeting - LIVE COVERAGE

Councillors will tonight prioritise the areas and services which they hope to protect from upcoming cuts as the county council tries to balance its budget.

Elected members will convene in County Hall at 5.30pm today (August 1) to determine a set of benchmarks against which they will make decisions on whether to cut services.

While no big financial decisions will be made at the meeting tonight, it is likely to highlight which non-statutory services could face the cuts.
