Birmingham City Council puts NEC up for sale

Birmingham City Council has announced it is selling off the NEC group. The council, which is facing a £1.1 billion bill for equal pay settlements, says it wants to ensure its existing uses are preserved.

The venue is one of the biggest exhibition centres in Europe and also houses the 16 thousand seat LG Arena which hosts concerts and conventions.
