3636812130?profile=RESIZE_710xCOUNCIL officers have managed to save £1m in spending from the over-budget children and families services budget.

Costs have come down at Portsmouth City Council as the department, which last year had a £7.7m overspend, by the use of the authority's own fostering service and fewer external residential placements.

The council is predicting an overall spend in the portfolio of £1.5m for 2019/20. But this has only come down so much from £7.7m as an extra £4m was injected by the council and an extra £1.3m funding came from a government grant.
