Maesteg BMX site 'too valuable' for public use

22 August 2013 Last updated at 15:28 BST

A £350,000 national standard BMX track opened in 2011 but has remained mostly closed because it is not insured for public use.

The track in Maesteg, near Bridgend, was built with EU, Welsh government and local authority cash.

The only user is a BMX group with its own insurance which uses the site three times a week.

Caerau Development Trust, which runs the site, said it was "too valuable" to be "abused and spoilt" by public use.
