A council facing a £79million budget cut has defended spending £100,000 on making 'patronising' videos, including films which show how to wash your hands and how to make a phone call.
Viewers can also get advice on how to read maps and use a compass by watching the videos produced by West Sussex County Council.
Other movies made in the past include Christmas messages to taxpayers, recorded by the council's Tory leadership.
The films have been criticised by opposition councillors, who say the council has made deep cuts to other services - including day care for the elderly, bus routes and library opening hours.
