A plan for a £500m re-development of Portsmouth's northern quarter is set to be axed, according to the city council.

The former Tricorn Centre area of Portsmouth was due to be regenerated with shops, a leisure hub and housing.

However, Portsmouth City Council said there was no longer a "suitable structure" in place to deliver the development.

The authority said the entire city centre would be "re-examined for future growth opportunities".
