A stadium for Cornwall could be killed off if supermarket plans are not delayed.

That is the warning from a string of business leaders and sports stars, including Bude's Phil Vickery.

The 10,000 seat stadium in Truro needs a store nearby to help pay for it.

Three new proposals for other supermarkets have been put forward.

Rob Saltmarsh from the developers Inox is worried the council's poised to approve a rival bid later this week.

He said: "If the council aren't able to wait for us and they proceed with approving one of the other supermarkets then that finishes the stadium for Cornwall.

"What I don't understand is why they cannot wait a few weeks, if our application is not wanted and is refused then we will have to deal with that, but the most frustrating part of all of this is to not even be considered."
