Bristol City: Cuts promised after £11.4m loss

The Bristol City chairman, Colin Sexstone, intends to cut the wage bill. "The thing that stands out in this set of accounts is that our costs are far too high for the level of income we are taking. That is not acceptable and, clearly, we have to reduce our wage bill," he said.
