Leeds United Win High Court Battle

Leeds United have won their High Court action over who should pay for policing of matches at their Elland Road stadium.
The club asked for a decision on which of the services deployed by West Yorkshire Police for the last three seasons were special police services, and whether it was entitled to be repaid for services wrongly categorised.
The litigation involved policing in the extended footprint of land around the stadium which is not owned or leased by the club - who claimed this fell within the scope of a constable’s normal common law obligations to maintain public order.
