£425m missing lottery monies

The government has reneged on a pledge to refund £425m to charities after the Olympics? The story so far: back in 2007, the government raided millions from lottery funds to pay for the infrastructure of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games. More than £400m of this money should have been distributed by the Big Lottery Fund in grants enabling charities to do vital work in communities.
