The Birmingham Post (p3) reports that Shropshire CC could be open to challenges in the courts when social services cuts lead to 100 hospital beds being blocked every week.

The council could face a legal challenge after it revealed that budget cuts of up to£10m - more than£2.7m in social services - mean that it has insufficient funds to buy places in residential or nursing homes.

The dilemma could lead Shropshire open to legal challenges that it is failing to provide the services it is required to by law.
