Blaenau Gwent £250m race track plan 'environment risk'

Plans for a £250m race track in Blaenau Gwent pose an "unacceptable environmental risk" and should be rejected in their current form.

That is the view of Wales' environmental watchdog, Natural Resources Wales (NRW).

Blaenau Gwent council will consider plans for the Circuit of Wales project later this month.

Developers say the track at Rassau would bring world-class motor racing to the valleys.
