There are several of these expensive and now unused or largely unused facilities. They cost 450 million pounds.

The local one cost 25 millions pounds, leaving the local council in the lurch for a big chunk of that (8 million) as well as the 2-million-a-year operating costs. It’s just sitting there. Nothing happens at it.
