Former Cardiff City chairman Peter Ridsdale has been disqualified from acting as a company director for seven-and-a-half years.

The 60-year-old has given an undertaking to the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills barring him from acting as a company director, and from managing or controlling a company, until April 2020 due to his conduct as a director of WH Sports Group Limited.

The company went into liquidation in April 2009 with assets of £22,592 and liabilities of at least £478,698, including £442,353 owed to HM Revenue & Customs.

Mr Ridsdale’s wife and co-director of WHSG has also been disqualified until April 2016.
