DON VALLEY STADIUM COULD CLOSE

Sheffield's Don Valley Stadium could face closure, to cut costs for the local council.

The stadium, which was used a temporary home by Rotherham United until they moved into the New York Stadium, is also the venue where Team GB star Jessica Ennis was discovered and still trains.

Sheffield City Council could save £500,000 each year if they close the stadium, but they insist no decision has been made, and that the idea is one of a number of cost-cutting options.
