It is an iconic stadium and its a place that has inspired youngsters and none more so than Jessica Ennis.
It is a fantastic facility and it is an incredible shame to lose something like this from the sporting map.

That opportunity all of a sudden looked to be there and now it's going to be taken away from a whole new generation of youngsters."
