Bangor's £45m Pontio arts centre cancelled until 2015

The opening of a £45m arts centre at a Gwynedd university has been delayed until 2015.

Bangor University's vice chancellor Prof John Hughes said he had taken the "difficult and painful" decision not to open Pontio this year because the building is not finished.

He said he had been left "no choice" but to postpone.

A spokesman for builders Miller blamed "a challenging schedule" for the delay.
