Newcastle United supporters, who are embroiled in a legal wrangle with the club, this week learned they may be under-insured by almost £80,000.

The supporters launched a campaign called Save Our Seats to try to stop the club from turning the part of the stadium they sit in into a corporate hospitality area.

Campaign members had been advised by the judge and their lawyers that their legal costs would not exceed £100,000. The group took out cover of £120,000 with intermediary Greystoke.

However, Newcastle United has now submitted legal costs of £197,000, leaving the supporters potentially under-insured by £77,000. The club is also asking the court to appoint a new judge to review its legal expenses and costs submission.
