George Osborne to reveal £11.5bn in spending cuts
George Osborne will today take the axe to public spending as he unveils £11.5bn of cuts.
A fresh round of spending cuts designed to help reduce the deficit, the chancellor will unveil £11.5bn of cuts for a single financial year - 2015/16.
Health and schools in England and foreign aid will continue to be protected, meaning other departments will have to take a bigger hit.
More job losses are expected in town halls across the country, the Guardian reports, while the Daily Mail claims more than 100,000 expatriate pensioners living in warmer countries will lose their winter fuel payments.

Intelligence agencies will be the big winners, the Telegraph says, with MI5, MI6, and GCHQ getting an above-inflation rise in their £1.9bn budget - equivalent to an extra £100m a year.
The chancellor is also expected to pledge billions more to major big infrastructure projects in an attempt to boost growth over the years up to 2020.
Mr Osborne will outline the Spending Review in the House of Commons from 12.30pm.
