The High Court decision on Lancashire's proposed redevelopment of Old Trafford is expected to be delivered next week.

The club's £70m plans, which are in conjunction with the supermarket chain Tesco, were initially approved by Trafford Council but have been challenged by Derwent Holdings, the owners of a nearby retail park. Lancashire believe if the planning decision is overturned it could effectively end their hopes of hosting high-profile international matches and so threaten the club's future. The formal hearing ended on Tuesday.
