Ownership of a listed Victorian market in Hereford could change hands as part of Herefordshire Council's bid to cut its spending.

Hereford Buttermarket is one of several owned by the council which could be transferred as it attempts to save £57.1m by 2016.

The authority said it was in talks with the city council and community groups about the future ownership of the grade II listed building.

The Buttermarket first opened in 1860.

Councillor Patricia Morgan said the building was "an important landmark for Hereford city".
