Plans to build a specialist motorsports college at Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire have been submitted.

Silverstone University Technical College would offer full-time courses to 14-19 years olds in engineering, event management and hospitality.

If approved, it would be one of the first in a new wave of specialist university technical colleges (UTCs).

South Northamptonshire Council is due to decide at a later date whether the development can go ahead.
