National rally in Solihull today against drastic youth service cuts
A major rally will launch a campaign by the country's biggest union against "catastrophic" cuts in youth services.
The event in Solihull, West Midlands, comes as Unite warned that one in four youth services in England faced spending cuts of up to 30%.
The union said some councils, such as Norfolk, Suffolk, Bucks and Manchester, planned to cut the services completely.
