English councils’ cultural spending has nearly halved over the past decade, official figures reveal, as authorities prepare their budgets for the year.

Public Campaign for the Arts, which crunched the headline numbers, reports that amounts to half as much funding per person. Where culture spending was worth £116.57 per person across England in 2010, it’s now just £59.50.
