School crossing patrol wardens in Derbyshire could become a thing of the past because of ‘unrelenting’ cuts which will force the end of some services, the council’s leader has said.

Closing up to 23 children’s centres, gritting fewer roads and cutting grants to voluntary groups are also possibilities at Derbyshire County Council.

The authority needs to strip £157m from its budget by 2015 and said the result could be around 2,000 fewer jobs.
