Meanwhile in Leicestershire

Honestly, I am out of the classroom for five minutes and look what happens:
  • Leicester's Phoenix Square needs a £250,000 council bail-out, less than a year after the film and digital media centre opened.
  • Vandals cause chaos for thousands of passengers after starting a fire that destroyed signal cabling between Market Harborough and Leicester.
  • A Conservative county councillor and cabinet member has been charged with assault.
On a more positive note, Leicester is considering a bicycle hire scheme along the lines of the one just introduced in London.

Barnsley has a Digital Media Centre, a building with a hollow centre. Former Council offices, I hear, so what did Council staff do in the hollow? And is any Digital stuff going on there now?
