Dawn Astle quits interview with PFA chief Gordon Taylor

The daughter of a former professional footballer who died from brain trauma has walked out of a meeting with a top official in the game.

Dawn Astle was meeting Gordon Taylor, chief executive of the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA).

Her father Jeff Astle died in 2002 at the age of 59. A coroner ruled his brain trauma was caused by heading footballs.

The Astle family has campaigned for more research into the link between football and dementia.
