Council must pay Ferguson's legal bill.

SEFTON Council has been ordered to pay Everton striker Duncan Ferguson's hefty legal bill after a year-long wrangle over permission for the star to build a block of flats in the grounds of his luxury home.

The former Scottish international player has been in dispute with his neighbours and Sefton council about the development in the garden of his pounds 2.1m house in Formby, since last March.

Ferguson, 32, was initially refused planning permission to build a block of 12 flats in March despite councillors being advised by planning officers that they should grant permission.

The decision followed a public protest and petition from residents who claimed the plans were not in character with exclusive Victoria Road,known as ``Millionaire's Row'', which is also home to Ferguson's teammate Wayne Rooney.
