Dreamland handed a lifeline by creditors

Creditors today agreed a rescue package for Margate's Dreamland, which has run up debts of nearly three million pounds just seven months after its troubled relaunch as a vintage amusement park. The company running it has entered into a Voluntary Arrangement to settle debts over five years - a move that avoids going into liquidation. Dreamland's 18 million pound restoration was largely funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and other public money. Tonight - questions about the project's financial management, and doubts about Dreamland's future viability. Sarah Saunders reports.
