The Communities Secretary Erics Pickles has tonight approved a decision to let Sainsbury's build a new supermarket at the current site of Bristol Rovers Footabll Club.

That approval means that Rovers can now proceed with their joint scheme with the University of the West of England to build a new stadium on the UWE Campus in South Gloucestershire.
