12 children's centres in Kent are to shut: the county council blames cuts in government funding. However 11 of 23 centres which were threatened with closure will remain open. It comes after the County Council consulted with thousands of parents.
The authority says it's come up with new ways of running them to save money and bring in some income. The centres offer help and advice to parents.
