Albion striker Hal Robson-Kanu has become embroiled in a row over a fence he put up on green belt land.

Planning experts are due to decide whether the fence can stay at his home in Ascot, Berkshire.

The Wales international sent legal representation to a meeting on Tuesday at Bracknell Forest Council’s offices.

It was ruled a decision would be made about whether the fence can stay in six to eight weeks.

Robson-Kanu, who is in the process of selling the house, ran into problems after it emerged his garden contains green belt land.

The 28-year-old, who hit the headlines last year following a famous goal against Belgium at Euro 2016, bought his detached home for £1.2 million five years ago, but only realised the fences surrounding the garden were contentious in 2015.

He applied for retrospective planning permission in December that year but was forced to appeal to the Government’s planning inspectorate when he was refused.
