Some 112 staff posts are threatened at Suffolk County Council as part of bid to save millions of pounds.

The job cuts could hit trading standards, social services and the fire service. It says if it wants to keep council tax rises down, it needs to cut £24 million off its budget for 2006. That means 112 jobs will have to go.
