A business plan has been approved for a £20m community stadium in York.

The stadium at Monks Cross would be home to York City FC and York City Knights Rugby League Club, and include a health centre and library.

City of York Council's cabinet approved the business plan on Tuesday night which, subject to planning permission, would unlock £4m of council funding.

The ground is also part of a new shopping development and has been described as a "community hub".
