YOUR story, on page four of the latest issue of the Wisbech Standard, is quite surprising.

I would have thought that as the local media you would support the campus of West Anglia in Wisbech to remain as it is.

When I initially read the story, some months ago of the relocation of this campus, I was surprised as to the reason behind this, but being used to the strange decisions, made by this government gave it no further thought, although it does seem (in my opinion), rather a waste of money..

When I moved to the area just a few years ago, I was impressed by the college campus in Ramnoth Road, and my two sons were able to complete their A level studies there, (with a brief spell at King's Lynn), and are now attending university in London, so I at a loss to reconcile your comments on "fighting for young people and the Fenland economy".
