COUNCILLORS met last night (Wednesday) to discuss how to respond to the recession and "weather the storm".

Members of Stevenage Borough Council discussed ways to help residents during the economic crisis.

Leader of the council, Sharon Taylor, said: "It's always the most vulnerable who get hurt when times are hard."

Celia Twomey, strategic director, said the council can help people to maximise their income, manage their finances, look at debt problems, and search for jobs if they have been made redundant.

She also said the council was looking to expand the Credit Union in the town, and explore affordable warmth.
