Warning signs on the roads of Brighton could fade away as a result of proposed town hall cuts, it has been warned.

Highways and road maintenance will be hit with a £665,000 reduction in funding as Brighton and Hove City Council attempts to save £17 million across the course of the next financial year, reports the Argus.

Due to these cuts, it is feared that people's health and safety could be endangered, with motoring lobbyist Steve Percy saying: "If you cut libraries people will get cross but if you cut roads maintenance people can get hurt. It’s a health and safety issue."

Elsewhere, the Wirral Globe has reported that health and safety rules could stop a seaside resort from reopening its paddling pool.

A total of £350,000 is necessary for it to be re-launched, but the council has been advised to scrap plans due to monetary concerns and worries over health and safety.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801268931-ADNFCR
