Protesters who have secured 6,000 signatures on a petition for a last-ditch debate about plans to close Don Valley Stadium have been met by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

The scale of support for the petition has forced Sheffield Council to discuss the closure and proposals to reopen the stadium as a community asset at its meeting on Wednesday.

Sheffield Hallam MP Mr Clegg met the Save Our Stadium protesters, led by athletics coach Rob Creasey, at the stadium to congratulate them on their petition success.
