A council has shelved its plans for legal action over a catering contract with a Scottish football club.
The Dumfries and Galloway authority provided the service for Queen of the South until September last year.
However, that was withdrawn in a dispute over payment issues with the Palmerston Park side.
A council spokeswoman said agreement had now been reached on the amount owed and it no longer anticipated having to take legal action.
The news comes against a background of economic difficulties at the Dumfries club.
It recently revealed it was facing "severe pressure" on its finances due to winter match cancellations.
Fans are planning a variety of fundraising events in order to support their team.
