Shutter closes on top photojournalism course

Really surprised and saddened to read this. HoldtheFrontPage reports today that the famous photojournalism course at Norton College, Sheffield is to close.
HTFP notes the course had launched the careers of some of the UK's best-known press photographers over the past 30 years.
It reports: "The course, at Norton College, Sheffield, is being discontinued by the college following a round of funding cutbacks for post-16 education. The decision to axe the course, the only one of its kind in the country, coincides with the forthcoming retirement of the course leader, Paul Delmar."
When I was at Press Gazette we used to feature some of the brilliant work produced by the students.
