Carlisle United protester vows to continue fight

A man who chained his car to the gates at Carlisle United has vowed to continue his protest for the rest of the season.

81-year-old Herbert Paterson says he is involved in a long-running legal dispute with the club over land.

He was arrested at the ground yesterday on suspicion of breach of the peace and assaulting a police officer.

He has not been charged and has been released while the Crown Prosecution Service decides whether to take the matter further.

A club spokesman says they are taking expert advice and any further comment would be inappropriate at this time.
