New police HQ plan wins approval

Plans for a new divisional police headquarters in Hull have been approved by council planners.

The new building, on the former gas works site in Clough Road, will replace the current police buildings at Queen's Gardens and Priory Road.

Humberside Police drew up the plans because it said the custody and car parking facilities at Queen's Gardens were inadequate.

The council's decision will be referred to the government for final approval.

Humberside Police said it hoped to open the new building in 2012.
