Architect HOK unveiled the first scale model of the £757m Wembley scheme at the MIPIM property exhibition in Cannes this week. The firm, which is working on the scheme with Foster and Partners, said the 90,000-seat stadium would be the largest of its type in the world. The launch came as the Football Association and sports minister Richard Caborn denied reports that banks have advised the FA to scrap the scheme. Contractor Multiplex started demolition work on the old stadium last month. The new ground is due to open in 2006.
