North Somerset legal challenge fails


The  BBC has reported that a legal challenge launched against cuts to young people’s services in North Somerset has been dismissed by a High Court judge. The action was brought on behalf of 21-year-old Aaron Hunt, who claimed the council had breached the Equality Act by failing to consult properly on youth service cuts of 71 per cent over the next three years.
