Leisure centres: Less being spent this year


Leisure centre provision across Wales will fall as councils struggle with budget cuts, the leader of the group representing them has warned.

Steve Thomas of the Welsh Local Government Association said the Olympic legacy could be jeopardised as authorities protect other key services.

New figures obtained by BBC Wales show 5% less is being spent on leisure centres this year compared to 2011/12.

The Welsh government said it was working to make the most of London 2012.
