Nottingham Forest has paid a tax bill for an undisclosed amount and avoided winding up in the High Court.

Lawyers for HM Revenue & Customs had lodged a winding up petition, but the application was dismissed on Monday as it was announced in court that "the revenue debt has been paid in full".

The football club's case was number 120 in the Companies Court Winding Up List before Registrar Michael Briggs, sitting in London.

Forest also escaped being wound up in the High Court last June after settling a tax bill.
