Chelsea football club have settled a dispute with their neighbour at Stamford Bridge and now can start work on a new Β£1 billion stadium.

The Blues have successfully settled the dispute with a neighbour who objected to the construction.

The Crosthwaite family took out an injunction in May 2017, saying the expansion to 60,000 seats would block light into their home.

In January, Hammersmith and Fulham Council passed a motion to prevent the injunction blocking the plans.

The club said on Wednesday that they have β€œreached an agreement with the family.”

Chelsea is expected to be playing at Stamford Bridge until the end of the 2019-20 season and will be forced to play at an alternative venue – likely to be Wembley Stadium – for up to four years during construction.
