Safe standing at football matches is 'common sense'

Standing could make a permanent return at all levels of the Football League after its 72 clubs were sent a document canvassing their opinion on the issue.

It is currently allowed in Leagues One and Two but Championship grounds must be all-seater after a club has played in the second tier for three seasons.

Malcolm Clarke is the chair of the Football Supporters' Federation. He told BBC Breakfast that allowing standing in safe areas was a "common sense solution" to the problem of fans standing in seating areas.
