How Osborne's cuts will affect Newcastle's Osborne Road


The government's spending review has triggered a stormy political debate that will no doubt rumble on for some time to come.

The Chancellor, George Osborne, requires billions of pounds of cuts which will affect communities across our region and hit jobs, services and benefits.
