Midland Metropolitan Hospital: £107m funding withdrawn by banks
Funding of £107m for a proposed West Midlands hospital has been "terminated" by banks following the collapse of the lead contractor, Carillion.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) had pledged the cash to co-finance construction of the Midland Metropolitan Hospital in Smethwick.
It had brought in four other lenders in to help following Carillion's collapse in January.
EIB blamed "ongoing project costs" of £5m for pulling out.
