Cornwall Council have backed plans to turn land currently used as a running track into a retail park.

Earlier this year, hundreds gathered outside the Carn Brea leisure centre in Camborne to protest against plans to sell the whole site.

Under current proposals, only the running track would be sold and moved to a new home at Redruth School.

The proceeds would then be used to refurbish the leisure centre.
