Two Birmingham colleges yesterday began a high court battle to recover nearly £2m in European funds from Birmingham City Council, reports The Birmingham Post (p3).

The colleges claim the council kept more than a third of European social fund money 'for its own benefit' when it was rightfully theirs.

The funding was made available to combat long-term unemployment and to encourage job-stability through vocational training, said counsel for the colleges.

The colleges claim the council spent the money on prestigious projects in the city.
