Championship side Brentford have unveiled revised plans for their proposed new stadium, with capacity reduced from 20,000 to 17,250 seats.

Facilities for Brentford's Community Sports Trust will be built next to the stadium, rather than inside it.

The Bees now plan to start construction of the stadium in 2018, to be completed by late 2019 or the start of 2020.

A club statement said: "These amendments will not impact on the overall quality of the stadium."

The amendment will be presented to members of the London Borough of Hounslow Planning Committee on 24 August, before plans are submitted to the council in early September.
