The City of Sheffield Athletics Club chairman said he is "furious" at the council's decision to close the Don Valley Stadium.
Mike Corden said:

We asked that question straight away and the politicians averted their eyes and waited for it to go away.
It's an appalling mess and if the politicians were bankers people would be baying for blood.
