Northamptonshire County Council is postponing the sale of its new headquarters, One Angel Square in Northampton.

They will instead try and use reserves to balance the books.

The news comes as this week the government approved inspectors recommendations to send commissioners in to oversee the county council's operations and financial management.

And Corby Borough Council's leader, Cllr Tom Beattie, has again stated that the authority won't willingly accept a recommendation to merge it with others to create a new unitary authority for the north of the county.
