Development of a £280m motor racing circuit in south Wales has been put on hold while the Welsh government determines its future.

The council-backed Circuit of Wales racetrack development is set to be constructed in Blaenau Gwent, near Ebbw Vale, but the Welsh government has issued a holding direction, meaning that ministers now have more time to decide whether or not they should call in the plans.

The development has received opposition from Gwent Wildlife Trust, which has said the circuit will damage local habitats, although supporters say it will generate £50m a year for the economy.

In addition to the racetrack, plans include a hotel with conference facilities, along with a business and leisure complex.
