Up to 1,300 jobs are set go at a county council as it looks make savings of £79 million over the next three years.

An estimated 500 posts – 100 of which are temporary agency staff – will go at West Sussex County Council between now and 2014.

The Conservative-led authority also said a further 800 jobs may be transferred to employment with other service providers.

The cuts will see the total number of people employed at the council, excluding schools, fall from 6,300 now to 5,000 in three years.

County council leader Louise Goldsmith said making the cost-savings decisions “was the worst times for all of us”.
