A Green Party city councillor from Norwich travelled to London to hand in a letter to the treasury calling for an end to cuts to local government funding.

The letter, signed by Green councillors and councillor candidates around England, highlighted the warnings of the Local Government Association (LGA) “of real and growing uncertainty about how local services will be funded beyond 2020” and was delivered by Thorpe Hamlet councillor Lesley Grahame.

Ms Grahame said: “I’d like to thank (Green Party co-leader) Caroline Lucas for bringing councillors together from across the country to show the treasury that cuts to local services are not the fault of errant local councils, but are imposed by national government. Suffering caused locally is found in different forms and places across the country. “
