Councillors will try and hammer out Gloucestershire County Council’s next budget today.

Shire Hall is facing increasing demands on its services and an ever-shrinking pot of cash to get the job done.

Things have never been tighter at Shire Hall and with every penny being pinched and the three main parties fighting to secure their own priorities it’s likely to be an entertaining day with important consequences for the county.

Political reporter Jack Maidment will be on hand to keep you abreast of the thrills, spills, bad jokes and red faces live from Shire Hall.

    Typical - Lib/Lab/Con protecting each others' backs! An absolute scandal!

    Totally agree with @Mike_Smith_Gi. Taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for political researchers! Typical non-job waste!. How much are these people on? SCRAP THE ACTIVE TOGETHER BUDGET all together, complete waste of money! It doesn't cost anything to loose a bit of weight, eat a bit less and go for a walk/jog. Its free. Well done on Citizen for actually covering this, ideally there should be a live webcam with a live stream so we can actually see what is going on, but at least the local media has actually covered it.

    Why should tax payers pay for 'political researchers'? Political parties should pay for their own. Well done, UKIP Councillors!
