PCC Statement on Leeds United FC v West Yorkshire Police (1 Aug 2014)

West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson said: 

"I am pleased to see that some clarity has been brought about through this judgment and that a principle for the charging of policing services has been established around the football ground. 

"It is now time to try and reach an agreement and draw a line under this, rather than further legal proceedings through the courts, which is costing both time and money for West Yorkshire Police and taxpayers. 

"I will now seek to ensure that a fair and workable position is established going forward."
