The Motor World car parts and accessories retailer has gone into administration, resulting in closure of its Crosspool store.

If a buyer is found for the business some branches of Motor World could reopen, but it is not known if this would include the Crosspool shop.

In 2010-11, a planning application to convert Motor World into a convenience store was rejected.

Stephen Hill church polling station: could be in Crookes and Crosspool council ward from 2016

Crookes local council ward could be renamed Crookes and Crosspool in time for the 2016 elections.

The recommendation from the the Local Government Boundary Commission for England follows a twelve-week public consultation on draft proposals that draw new boundaries for each council ward across Sheffield.

The proposed new electoral arrangements must now be implemented by parliament, with the hope that the changes will come into force for the council elections next year.
