Southampton's SeaCity Museum fails to meet targets

Southampton's council-run SeaCity Museum is failing to meet its projected visitor numbers and income targets.

A BBC Freedom of Information request has found the city council has paid £430,000 into the attraction since it opened in April 2012.

Southampton City Council said the figures were "disappointing" but added it was not unusual for attractions to see a revenue dip in their second year.

It said a renewed effort would be made to increase takings.

BBC Hampshire political reporter Jessica Parker reports.
