Plans for a new railway station in Worcestershire have been approved.

The new station in the Aston Fields area of Bromsgrove will be built about 320ft (100m) from the current one and include four platforms as well as a 350-space car park.

Worcestershire county councillor Rob Adams said the station would "bring economic benefits" to Bromsgrove and the rest of the county.

The station is due to be open in May 2015.

The new station will accommodate six-carriage trains, with the potential to extend it and make space for nine-carriage trains.
