Sure Start - the axe starts to fall

An estimated 60,000 families are to be affected as 250 Sure Start Children's Centres are likely to close in 2011 as a result of the decision by the government to slash funding for the scheme.

In addition a report by the the charitable organisations 4Children and the Daycare Trust estimates that another 2000 centres will provide a reduced service and over 3000 will have their funding significantly reduced.
