Public spending on Circuit of Wales plan 'not justified'

Government officials made "inexplicable decisions" about the spending of public money on the ill-fated Circuit of Wales project, assembly members have said.

They found no evidence that ministers had approved the purchase of a motorcycle firm in England with funds earmarked for the Ebbw Vale race track.

Public accounts committee chairman Nick Ramsay said the public were "misled" and wants spending controls tightened.
