Hundreds of art groups stranded by funding cuts

Over 200 organisations that received regular funding from Arts Council England have missed out after "a series of painful decisions".

About 1,300 venues, theatres, galleries and arts groups applied for grants from the council, which had its budget cut by £100m in October's Spending Review.

Some 695 groups will get funding for 2012 to 2015 - down from 849 - while 110 new groups have been successful.

Will Gompertz reports.
