The panel recommended a super-casino be built in east Manchester
Peers have rejected a decision to build the UK's first super-casino in Manchester by just three votes.

It means the plans will not be implemented, even though MPs backed the proposal by a majority of 24.

The Lords vote also means that plans for 16 smaller casinos around the UK will have to be shelved.

Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell said that, after the defeat, she wanted "to reflect on the outcome" and promised new proposals.
