The government has appointed commissioners to run Nottingham City Council after the authority declared itself effectively bankrupt.

The Labour-run authority issued a section 114 notice on 29 November, amid an in-year budget gap of £23m.

Changes at the council have been overseen by a government-appointed board following the collapse of council firm Robin Hood Energy three years ago.

The move has been confirmed by local government minister Simon Hoare.
