Three Conservative-controlled councils are planning to combine services, including cutting chief executive and other senior posts, with the loss of 500 jobs.

Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster City Council say combining office and management costs could save 35-million pounds a year.

The plans include reducing the number of chief executives from three to two.

Boris Johnson is concerned frontline services must not be compromised by the plans.
