Mr Farron said:

"The Liberal Democrats have had a safe standing game plan for years. Labour are just arriving in the 90th minute.

"But at least Labour finally know the score. Let's hope that their support proves to be a game-changer.

"It is time the Tories got the ball rolling and allowed clubs to introduce safe standing at matches."
