A judge has found in favour Blackpool FC's president Valeri Belokon who is suing the club's owner in a dispute about the building of the club's hotel.

The bitter row over the club’s finances could cost more than £1m to Karl Oyston.

Neither party was present at Manchester’s Civil Justice Centre for the judgement, but their legal representatives dealt with the case as around 20 fans watched from the public gallery.

The case is currently ongoing - stay tuned for further updates.
