Popular youth centre in most deprived part of Gloucestershire closed

This well run Local Authority youth centre had regular attendance of around 250 young people per week, giving them somewhere safe to go and engaging them in a range of positive activities.  It is in one of the most deprived areas of Gloucestershire. Senior sources in the County Council have admitted to me that it was not a rational decision in terms of thier policy of targeting support on those in most need but was driven by a Conservative political agenda.  This youth centre is an area that has always voted Labour.  There were no votes for the Conservatives in keeping it open.
