Protestors took to the steps of Mansfield Town Hall to protest over the brutal cuts planned by Nottinghamshire County Council.

Up to 10 members of Mansfield SOS (Save our Services) staged the protest an hour after details of the budget were released, which will see a hike in council tax, up to 800 jobs being lost and council services slashed across all areas.

SOS member Karen Seymour said: “Some of us spoke about the effects using a megaphone and then we all tore the consultation cards in half before binning them.”
