THOUSANDS of jobs will be lost on Tyneside as a result of Government cuts, a secret report has revealed.

Experts at jobs agency One North East have released a damning dossier setting out how £2bn will be taken from the region by 2015.

The cuts will see a predicted 50,000 people lose their jobs.

Some 20,000 of these will come from private businesses, with the rest coming from councils, hospitals, police forces and Government offices.
