A retail unit near Wakefield city centre will be converted into a takeaway.

Permission had been sought as far back as 1984 to convert 49 Westgate End into a restaurant but it was rejected.

Now a new application to convert the unit has been approved.

A planning report said the area now had other similar businesses and changing shopping habits meant it could not be rejected for taking up retail space.
