Over 200 Britons have staged a protest rally in Exeter, Devon over the coalition government's public service spending cuts.
The protestors, carrying placards, gathered in Belmont Park before marching around the city.
After the protest, there was a question and answer session for the candidates of the local government election.
The British government has applied a severe costs cut to the different sectors of the economy in order to tackle the budget deficit.
Devon County Council spending is to be cut by GBP 54.6million over the next financial year under the Spending Review.
The Conservative-controlled council has a budget of GBP 865 million and is said to be losing 900 jobs.
