Closing Burnley UTC 'gave students opportunities'

An engineering student has said a specialist construction and engineering college in Lancashire, which is closing at the end of the academic year, has provided him with "opportunities".

Lewis Robinson, Ethan Bulcock and George Speak are about to leave the £10.3m University Technical College which opened in Burnley three years ago.

The college is to close due to low student numbers - a total of 113 students currently attend the college and there were just 48 applications to begin studying there this September.
