Leeds United tribunal: Ex-employee Lucy Ward's 'name cleared'

A former Leeds United employee has said her "name has been cleared" after winning her case for unfair dismissal and sex discrimination against the club.

Lucy Ward claimed she was sacked because she was former head coach Neil Redfearn's partner.

Ms Ward, who worked as the club's education and welfare officer, travelled to Canada to work as a BBC pundit at the 2015 Women's World Cup.

The club, which denied any wrongdoing, claimed she was sacked for exceeding her annual leave entitlement.
