Fund targets grassroots sport - Sports Minister Hugh Robertson

Speaking at the launch of a scheme aimed at using £50m of National Lottery funding to develop sports facilities in local communities, Sports Minister Hugh Robertson says he suspects the initiative may be oversubscribed.

Inspired Facilities is part of Sport England's efforts to raise levels of participation in sport.

Increasing the number of people playing grassroots sports was a key pledge of London's bid for the 2012 Games.
