Labour proposes greater fan powers

Football fans could have a greater say in the running of their clubs, under radical plans proposed by Labour.
Supporters would have seats on every board and the right to buy a significant slice of a club's shares when its ownership changes.
Labour say it would be "the biggest legislative shake-up in the governance of English and Welsh football clubs since the advent of the game".
Only 14 league clubs currently have fan representatives on their board.
Swansea City are the only Premier League outfit among the 14, with the Swansea City Supporters Trust owning 20% of the club.
But if Labour win next year's General Election, fans' trusts could be able to appoint and remove up to a quarter - and not less than two - of a club's directors.
