Lions sad to leave Milton Keynes

Chief executive Vince Macaulay tells BBC Three Counties Radio he is disappointed to be moving the Lions basketball franchise to London.

The 2008 BBL Cup winners will play their home games at Crystal Palace before re-locating to the Copper Box Arena in the Olympic Park for the 2013-14 season.

"It's really gut-wrenching to have to leave," he says. "In Milton Keynes, we just don't have enough facilities to host professional sport at the right level."
