Paul Haggarth of surveyor Drivers Jonas said: "Construction is approximately two weeks ahead of schedule.
"We're very pleased with the way it's going so far and we've had no major problems."

A £2.8m grant was rejected by Sport England three weeks ago. Councillor Tom McVie told the HDM: "They're refusing the quite reasonable amount we're asking for the community aspect."

Meanwhile, Hull City supporters have the opportunity to put their questions forward regarding the stadium to Adam Pearson, Trevor Larson and John Topliss on January 30th at a fans forum. Free tickets are available from Boothferry Park, but it will also be live on Radio Humberside for those who can't get to the event.
