Stadium delays hit Liverpool again

Liverpool have announced that the plans for their new stadium in Stanley Park have been delayed yet again.

It has been feared for some time that American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett were having trouble raising the funds for the £400million new ground, which will be built adjacent to the current Anfield site.

The club statement said: "Our commitment to building a new world-class LFC stadium is undiminished. Like many other major development projects in the UK and overseas we are affected by global market conditions and as such work on the project will be delayed in the short term.

"We will use this period productively and revisit the plans for the stadium to increase its capacity to 73,000 seats."
