Redditch campaigners urge youth centre closure rethink

The closure of Redditch Youth Centre would leave young people to "play on the streets" campaigners have said.

The centre on Ipsley Street is due to close at the end of the year as Worcestershire County Council attempts to meet savings targets.

A community group is trying to raise £150,000 to buy the building and keep it open.

Worcestershire County Council said it was looking to fund youth activities directly, rather than invest in a building that required renovation.
