But Leeds' bosses claim that they are still owed more than £800,000, Sir David Eady was told.

The figures emerged on Friday after the judge examined the latest stage of the dispute between West Yorkshire Police and Leeds.

Two years ago Eady ruled that the force overcharged for "special police services" over three seasons between 2009 and 2012, following a High Court hearing.

West Yorkshire Police and Leeds are now arguing over how exactly much should be repaid.

The judge on Friday revealed detail of developments in the case in a written analysis following a further High Court hearing in London in June.
