Plans for the Bristol Arena are expected to be approved at a city budget meeting tonight.

The £90 million venue next to Temple Meads would have a capacity of 12,000.

Work could start in January 2016 if the scheme gets the go-ahead.

The City Council has raised £53 million for the project and is planning to borrow the rest. The meeting will also debate cuts and a 2 percent rise in council tax.
