Sainsbury's has pulled out of plans to build a distribution depot near Exeter, which could have created hundreds of jobs.

The supermarket giant said after an "extensive review" there was "no longer a requirement for the depot".

It would have supplied stores across south-west England and created about 450 jobs.

Planning permission for the 500,000 sq ft depot near the Skypark development and Exeter Airport was granted in 2011.

It was going to be built as part of the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point, which will incorporate science and business parks, a freight terminal, and the new town of Cranbrook.
