The sun ain't gonna shine anymore

Doctors' leaders have strongly criticised a local authority which has taken more than £83,000 from operating sunbeds in the past five years.

After a Freedom of Information request, the British Medical Association (BMA) found that Wrexham generated the money.

After BMA Wales criticism, the Vale of Glamorgan council recently agreed to remove its leisure centre sunbeds.

Wrexham council said it would also be removing sunbeds by April 2010, and has already reduced their numbers to five.

The BMA said it was "deeply shocked" after obtaining the £83,632 income figures relating to sunbed use at Wrexham council leisure facilities.
