Leeds fan won't paint gates in red!

A painter and decorator who refuses to use red paint because he supports Leeds United is embroiled in a controversy over the city council's plans to repaint three large gates on the main roundabout at Crossgates, in east Leeds, reports The Independent. The council intend to replace the current white, blue and silver with red, white and black.

When told that Leeds fans didn't want them in Manchester United colours, Councillor Pauline Grahame said: "I've never heard such a load of rubbish."

Gary Edwards urged fellow fans to contact their MPs to "step in and stop this mindless vandalism", and added: "Repainting the gates will cost £143,000. I will paint them free of charge - in all-white."
