Cardiff clear tax bill with £1.9m pay-off

CARDIFF have finally paid the £1.9 million owed to HM Revenue and Customs that threatened the Coca-Cola Championship club's existence.

The Welsh club fought off successive winding-up orders following their initial appearance in court back in November, with the club at the start of this year reducing the 2.7m they originally owed in order to gain more time to settle their debt.
