Plans for a Sainsbury's supermarket to be built at the present site of Bristol Rovers' Memorial Stadium in Horfield have been recommended for approval.

The football club says it needs to sell its ground in order to move to a new stadium in Stoke Gifford - on land close to the University of the West of England.
The recommendation is for the plans to be referred to the Secretary of State, who then has 21 days to comment.
Bristol City Councillors are due to vote on the development next Wednesday (January 16).
