Bristol Rovers' plans to move to a new stadium have been hit by a further delay.A planning meeting to discuss proposals to build a Sainsbury's supermarket at their current home - the Memorial Stadium - has been put back until January 16.

It was scheduled to be held on December 5.

Rovers already have planning permission to build a new stadium in Frenchay on land owned by the University of the West of England.

They had hoped to move in to their new ground at the start of the 2014/15 season but chairman Nick Higgs has admitted that now looks unlikely.
