Morrisons, Asda and ING want to build their supermarkets in three different locations in Hayle

The controversial "battle" of the supermarkets for a Cornish town has still not been resolved.

After more than eight hours of deliberation, Cornwall Council's strategic planning committee deferred decisions on three applications in Hayle.

A fourth application, from Sainsbury's, to build at Marsh Lane was rejected.

The decisions on applications from Morrisons, Asda and ING Red UK were deferred for five months.

Hayle's residents are divided over the number and location of the proposed supermarkets.

Morrisons plans to build a supermarket on the site of a former Jewson's outlet in the town.

Asda wants to develop Hayle Rugby Club's ground and has said it will provide the club with a new ground and facilities if its bid is approved.

ING's plans are for a supermarket at Hayle Harbour.
