Leeds chairman Ken Bates has been ordered to pay £10,000 to a former director who sued him for harassment.

Melvyn Levi and his wife Carole claimed they suffered stress as a result of announcements on the club radio station allegedly likening Levi to a criminal on the run.

They also claimed comments made by Bates in his match day programme notes amounted to speculation over the state of their marriage. Mr Levi was awarded £10,000 in compensation at Leeds County Court but his wife's claim failed.
