Cash from crooks helps youth group.

A CITY youth project has used cash seized from crooks to buy and transform a bus into a mobile youth centre.

Erdington youth charity, Urban Devotion, applied for funding which was seized by West Midlands Police through the Proceeds of Crime Act earlier this year.

The charity used the pounds 12,500 funding to buy a van, which has been decked out with state-ofthe-art audio and visual equipment.

The van is now used by the charity as a mobile youth centre across Perry Common and Erdington.

Kate Hammond, youth work development trainee at Urban Devotion Birmingham, said: "The mobile youth centre will provide a great base to do this from."

The Church of England also donated funds towards the youth centre.
