As Birmingham reels after the discovery of the tenth child - a two year old from Harborne - to die from neglect in the city in under four years, the Tory/Liberal run City Council has announced its main target for cutbacks – the council’s Children, Young People and Families Service.  Birmingham, the largest local authority in the UK, has a £26 million deficit and aims to slash over 2,000 jobs from Social Services: 1300 jobs from the Children, Young People and Families Service and 305 jobs from Adult and Community Services.
