The BBC has followed up reporting on the Architects Journal, which unearthed an injunction filed by the Crosthwaite family and another undisclosed family to stop new stadium construction.

Chelsea's Stamford Bridge Stadium is one of the biggest in London, being able to hold more than 41,000 screaming fans every match.

The BBC reports that the Crosthwaites, who have lived in a cottage close to the Blues' home for over 50 years, were granted a High Court injunction to halt the development of the stadium last year by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, after councillors sympathised with their concerns.

The family are strongly opposed to the club's plans on redeveloping the stadium due to their "right to light".

Chelsea FC, owned by billionaire Roman Abramovich, reportedly offered them a six-figure sum to waive their claim but they turned it down.

However, despite its close proximity, Stamford Bridge sits in the neighbouring Hammersmith and Fulham borough, whose council could effectively sidestep the injunction after the stadium was signed off on by both its planning officers and the Mayor of London previous year.

A three-bedroom property on the same street as the Crosthwaites sold for £1.18m previous year.

The family have said via their lawyers they are not opposed to the stadium's redevelopment but have suggested planned hospitality areas be scaled back in order to make the East Stand closest to them smaller.

Therefore the council plan to use their powers under planning law to buy the air rights over part of Stamford Bridge and the railway line which sits between the stadium and the affected homes.

A decision will be taken at a Hammersmith and Fulham council cabinet meeting on Monday.

A consultation of 13,000 residents earned 97.5 per cent support, and Chelsea have compensated other homeowners.

The Premier League club is pretty insistent on getting the stadium upgraded, saying it will "further enhance the economic, cultural and social services they provide".
