Geoffrey Richmond made bankrupt
Former Bradford city chairman Geoffrey Richmond - who acted as a consultant in the takeover talks for Leeds United - has been declared bankrupt.

Leeds County Court heard how Mr Richmond owes almost 3.3m following the collapse of a business of which he was a director.

His barrister had asked for a 12-week adjournment to recoup some of the debt, but the judge refused.

Mr Richmond's counsel says he intends to appeal to the High Court
