King's Lynn Stars officials have moved to compensate spectators after the farcical postponed meeting against the Swindon Robins.

With only four races completed because of a downpour, Wednesday's home clash was called to a halt at 9.48pm.

In a statement, the Stars said: 'The club have taken immediate action and everyone who attended with a re-admission ticket will be eligible to attend any speedway meeting at King's Lynn between now and the end of the season.

'If this is not convenient then we politely ask that supporters contact the office at the Adrian Flux Arena or e-mail to ask for a refund.'

Owner Buster Chapman added: 'I did everything I possibly could to give the riders the conditions they wanted after what was a very heavy downpour. Sadly this was to no avail, but I can honestly say I did my very best to get this meeting on.'
