The Auditor General has criticised how more than £3million of public money was spent on a rural heritage tourist centre in Gwynedd.
An official report says there were "serious weaknesses" in the Cywain Centre project at Bala. Owain Phillips reports.
A report out today says £3.4 million of public money spent on a heritage centre in Bala could have been saved if the steps had been taken to prevent the centre from closure.
The Cywain Centre opened in April 2008 but ran into difficulties and closed in September 2011.
The report by the Wales Audit Office says those that funded the centre were aware that the business case for the centre was unrealistic.
A Welsh Government spokesperson said: "Safeguarding public money is something we take extremely seriously.
"We have already made improvements to the way we monitor projects, based on lessons learned from previous WAO reports. We will now consider the recommendations of the WAO's report and will respond to the findings in due course.
"However, it is important to recognise that EU programmes and projects are delivering for Wales. We are in a better situation now as a result of vital EU funds investment, worth some £4 billion since 2000."
Bala Town FC marked their first foray into European competition by edging out seven-time Estonian champions FC Levadia Tallinn 1-0.
Bala Town´s Europa dream is to be continued after the win last night at Rhyl thanks to an early goal from striker Ian Sheridan.
They beat the Estonia League leaders infront of a crowd of around 1,200.
It was the first leg of the Europa League for the Welsh part-timers in the qualifying round.
The away match for the second leg is in Tallinn on Thursday, 11 July.
Bala began as underdogs but former Wales player Mark Jones had a couple of chances straight after the break to extend the Town´s lead but was denied by the Levadia shot stopper.
The visitors then glanced the post from a freekick before Ian Sheridan had a one on one with the keeper but he pulled off a magnificent save.
After 3 minutes of added time Bala held on for an incredible victory.
North Wales Fire Service are urging people to take extra care when heating, or cooking in, a tent or caravan after a fire on a Bala campsite this morning. A 40 year old man is in hospital with burns to his hands and chest after an electric heater fell over setting his caravan awning alight.
Bala have qualified for next season's Europa League after winning the Welsh Premier League play-off final.
The match against Port Talbot looked as if it was going to end goalless - but 88 minutes in, the visitors missed a chance before John Irving was ready for the rebound, scoring the winning goal.
A major exercise has taken place around the Bala area to test the response of emergency workers to flooding. It follows recent serious cases across North Wales.
It's hoped the exercise will better ensure emergency services are prepared to protect homes and communities.
