Plans to redevelop a derelict meat factory in Wiltshire have been given the go-ahead by planners.

The Bowyers meat processing factory in Trowbridge has been derelict since the company moved out six years ago.

Last year developer Prorsus wanted to build a cinema complex, supermarket and restaurants but the application was refused by Wiltshire Council.

The new application has dropped the cinema plans and instead includes leisure facilities and other shops.
