World Cup stadium plan rejected

Plans for a proposed new venue for Ireland's rugby World Cup bid in 2023 have been quashed.

Planning permission for the 38,000-seater stadium has been overturned after residents in west Belfast objected.

Mr Justice Mark Horner ordered the step at Belfast's High Court, which means it is back to the drawing board for the redevelopment of the Gaelic Athletic Association's Casement Park.
