National Dance Company Wales funding probe backed by AM

The public must know where its money is being spent, an AM has said after it emerged funding of National Dance Company Wales is being investigated by a financial watchdog.

There are concerns over the way the organisation is run.

A confidential report for the Arts Council of Wales (ACW) said the company faced "a crisis in its governance and its management".

The dance company gets the majority of its funding - over £850,000 - from ACW.

Auditor general Huw Vaughan Thomas will examine how ACW has administered its grants to the company.

Plaid Cymru AM Bethan Jenkins asked the auditor general to investigate.
