Angus Council must do all it can to slash its “stunning” £50,000 a year bill for courier services, it has been claimed.

With £20 million of budget cuts looming, the local authority has been urged to take steps to reduce printing and delivery costs and go paperless where possible.

Figures released under freedom of information (FoI) revealed the council spent £48,908 on courier services in 2011-12 and £47,936 last year.
