The club plans to build a 60,000 seater stadium
Plans for Liverpool FC's new stadium have been re-approved by city councillors without any alterations to the original scheme.

Plans for the stadium in Stanley Park, next to its current Anfield ground, were first given the go-ahead by Liverpool City Council in 2005.

The club had to resubmit plans for the 60,000-seater ground to make sure they conformed to new planning laws.

The club is looking for investors to help fund the 160m venture.

Shareholders were told at the club's recent AGM that it could be four years before the stadium was completed.
