Gillingham Football Club fans can go to the ball after all after the club announced a ban on supprters attending the side's match against Swindon Town has been lifted.

The about turn follows a stand-off about the cost of policing the match, with Kent Police and the local council on one side of the dispute, and the football club on the other.

Gillingham has agreed to pay to police this weekend's game, but say they are still willing to go to court to object about increased costs in future. Sarah Saunders went along to meet the club's chairman.
