County council proposals to close dozens of libraries have prompted a huge response in towns and villages across Essex.

Sue Barker, county councillor responsible for libraries, spoke to Gazette head of content Dom Bowers and Essex University student Jacob Ottaway about her plans in the latest Colchester Chat podcast.

They discussed Sue Lissimore's resignation from the cabinet as she fights to save Prettygate library, why books raids are a bad idea and the fact the county council has budgeted for ANY savings.
