Crime proceeds fund Blaina sports academy

Money seized from criminals in the Gwent Police Force area is being given to community groups.

The Tillery Combat Academy in Blaina near Ebbw Vale, Blaenau Gwent, is one organisation that has benefited.

The area's police and crime commissioner is giving out grants to projects that help reduce issues including anti social behaviour, or reduce the risk of offending. A total of more than £150,000 has been made available.

Young people have been involved in choosing which projects will benefit.
