THE Con­ser­va­tive mayor of the West Mid­lands has called on Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May to end aus­ter­ity – claim­ing “the cuts have gone far enough”.

Andy Street spoke out in the week the Tories visit Birm­ing­ham for their an­nual con­fer­ence.

In an in­ter­view with the Post, he warns that lo­cal ser­vices are suf­fer­ing, adding: “I think it is right to say that the cuts have gone far enough. It’s not rea­son­able to ex­pect that this con­tin­ues.”
