Planning permission was granted last night for a £45 million pound redevelopment of Cheltenham racecourse. It's the racecourse's largest-ever investment in new facilities and includes a new grandstand and multi-tiered viewing platform for the parade ring.

Work is due to start after the Festival meeting next March and is not expected to disrupt the race programme at Prestbury Park.
