Should the Government come up with the cash to retain the Future Jobs Fund?

A major employment project is ending in style after meeting its target of creating jobs for 720 people.

Josh Donaldson, 19, is the latest and last person to be helped by the Future Jobs Fund in Hartlepool, which has now run its course.

He is the 720th person to be assisted by the fund, which since October 2009 has channelled £4.6m towards young people and disadvantaged groups in the town.
