Review to examine college funding


The body which decides further education funding in England has been accused of a mismanagement, which has left some colleges with demolished buildings and no funds to replace them. It emerged this month that the Learning and Skills Council has approved in principle building work at 79 colleges, with more in the pipeline, which the government cannot afford to fund. Correspondent Kim Catcheside reports on the errors that led to the chaos. Minister for Further Education Sion Simon says the government is urgently trying to find out how the situation arose.
