Science centre saved from axe.

A MULTI-MILLION pound North Wales environmental science centre looks set to be saved from the axe.

But it is possible some jobs may be lost at Bangor university's ecology and hydrology site.

Yesterday the Natural Environment Research Council announced proposals for the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology to close four of its sites across Britain.

Four, including Bangor, will remain open.

It is part of an Nerc shake-up to make the research service more efficient.

A Nerc spokeswoman said: "The proposed reshaping of CEH would enable it to continue to deliver high quality research and environmental advice.

"It would improve science delivery and retain a geographical spread across England, Scotland and Wales, needed for CEH to carry out its research effectively.

Restructuring would mean some redundancies at sites being closed but also at retained sites
