A PUB manageress has been fined £2000 for letting a football match be shown in her bar.

The company which ran the Avalon Bar in Kent Road, Glasgow, was also fined £5000 over the screening, which defied a court order.

A judge at the Court of Session in Edinburgh heard that customers were watching Scotland's World Cup qualifier against Belgium.

But just two hours earlier, manageress Sarah McIntosh had been served with legal papers telling her BSkyB had obtained an interdict. Her dad, David McIntosh, as director and sole shareholder of the company, was also served with the order.

They were ordered to appear in court personally where judge Lord Glennie could have imposed a jail sentence for contempt of court.

BSkyB claimed their copyright had been breached because the pub did not have a viewing card to entitle them to show the broadcasts commercially.
