    It's Carers Week - a chance to recognise, celebrate and, most of all, listen to the stories of unpaid carers, writes Ed Davey, Leader of the Lib Dems.

    People looking after their loved ones are doing a remarkable job in difficult circumstances. As a carer for most of my life - first for my mum, then for my gran, and now for my disabled son, John - this is something I know all too well.

    But, we now know, following increasingly shocking revelations, the awful state of Slough Council's finances.

    In the words of the Council's new Finance Director in March 2022, the deficit of Slough's Labour-run Council "is of a magnitude which has not been seen before across the UK". Furthermore, "the Council has no complete and fully accurate accounts since 2015/16".
