Bristol teachers march against cuts to adult education

Teachers and students from an adult education centre in Bristol have marched through the city in protest at possible cuts to some services.

The Beacon Centre in Russell Town Avenue offers courses in literacy, numeracy, English for speakers of other languages and sign language.

Karen Iles, a teacher at the centre, said: "The cuts would deprive the people of Bristol of a vital lifeline."

The BBC contacted the Skills Funding Agency who were not able to comment.
