Two leisure centres in Worcester, England have been saved from cuts after being handed over to a county-based trust to run their affairs.

If given council approval, The Wychavon Leisure Trust will take over from Wychavon District Council this October in a two-year deal, with an option to extend for an additional year on top.

Under Government rules, trusts get an 80 per cent discount on rates, meaning the running costs of St John's Sports Centre and Nunnery Wood Sports Complex would fall by £89,000.

Both sites have seen income fall by around £70,000 since 2009.
