Leeds United Wins High Court Ruling Over Police Costs

Championship side Leeds United have "won their high court action over who should pay for policing of matches at Elland Road," according to the PA. The litigation involved policing "in the extended footprint of land around the stadium which is not owned or leased by the club." England High Court Judge David Eady said that those services "could not be classified as special police services and the club, whose home matches have one of the worst records of football-related violence in the country, should be repaid" (PA, 7/24).
