Up to 2,500 jobs and dozens of Sheffield city council services are threatened as the authority decides where to make cuts to balance the books, the Yorkshire Post reports (p1).

The paper says city treasurer Malcolm Newman is urging councillors to make tough decisions at an emergency meeting on Friday.

This will put the council on a collision course with its workforce whose union leaders last night vowed to fight job cuts with strike actions, says the Yorkshire Post.

Mr Newman identified the need for savings of more than £30 million in his report and sets out two options, one involving the lost of 1,000 jobs and the other 2,500 jobs.
