Invest in young people says Birmingham youth worker

Members of 30 youth clubs from across Birmingham gathered in the city centre today to protest at cuts to their budgets.

They placed shoes in Chamberlain Square to 'symbolise teenagers who will be left out on the streets' if their youth clubs close down.

The council blames central government for the reductions; campaigners say they won't be saving much.

Russell Green, a youth worker in Birmingham, thinks the council should be investing in young people.
