The future of Leeds United looks safe this morning after the club was sold back to former owner Ken Beast by grandmother Betty Ramsbottom, who bought it at a car boot sale last weekend.

Granny Ramsbottom, 91, of Pudsey, handed the Elland Road outfit over to Beast yesterday for a figure thought to be in the region of £15, after she realised that she had, in fact, "no earthly use for it whatsoever". The sale price, if accurate, represents a massive 500% profit for Granny, who snapped it up at the Roundhay Car Boot for £2.50.

Beast, real name Ben Steak, has already said he won't be paying-off any of Leeds £135m debt, as he can't afford it. His wife, Bet Snake, real name Bet Sneak, has been named as a director in a 'purely advisory capacity'.

Leeds fans, themselves, are overwhelmingly in favour of the outcome of the sale. Supporters Club chairman Stan Beek said:

"Mr Beast will lead us back to our former glories."

Not everyone was as confident though. Local historian, EK Batsen, a Leeds supporter for more than 150 years, feels the club is on an uncontrollable downward spiral, and said:

"We'd have been better off leaving the club in the hands of the Granny."
