The controversial South Yorkshire Digital Region project is to be shut down, after bosses admitted it was not financially viable.
Doncaster Council has put in millions of pounds into the project which was designed to give the region an advantage in high tech industries through a superfast broadband system.
But today the councils involved in the scheme put out a statement which said shareholders in the scheme had agreed to halt their search for a private sector partner following increased uncertainty and risk around compatibility of future funding with EU state aid rules.
This was inevitable, and will inevitably cause problems for some. Still, I think it was well overdue.
