Cambridge will get the UK's biggest multi-storey cycle park after city planners gave it the go-ahead.

The park at the railway station will hold space for 3,000 bikes and will be opened in December 2014.

A new hotel will also be built on the site of the current British Transport Police building, which will be knocked down.

The plans form part of the city council's £850m project to renovate the area around the station.

It is estimated there are about 55,000 cyclists in the city.
