Nottingham Forest supports new youth centre

Nottingham Forest has opened a new youth training facility at the City Ground to help train hundreds of young people in Nottinghamshire every week.

It will focus not only on football skills but job-seeking and healthy living.

The club's Nottingham Forest in the Community charity needs to raise £600,000 a year to run the new Champions Centre.

As the BBC's East Midlands Politics Editor John Hess reports, the youth centre was opened by Labour leader Ed Miliband.
