UK Sport Accused of 'Bullying' Over Funding be ex-BBSA Directors

UK Sport has been accused of "bullying" national governing bodies with threats over public funding by two former board directors of the British Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association.

Elizabeth Heath and Steven Rowland-Jones both resigned from the BBSA in September after UK Sport demanded its entire board step down as a condition of receiving £6m of public money.

In correspondence seen by the BBC, each then wrote letters claiming UK Sport had breached governance rules to the Secretary of State for the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
