Norfolk County Council has announced plans to cut more than 360 jobs in a bid to save 44m from this year's budget 2012-2013. The cuts will affect posts in the children's and community services departments.

The cuts follow previous redundancy rounds: in early 2011, the council had announced to cut 1,000 jobs in the fiscal year 2011-2012 (see here).
