Spears allowed night with sons

Britney Spears has been given permission to spend the night with her two sons, after a new custody hearing in Los Angeles.

Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline returned to court on to review the custody status of Sean Preston, two, and one year old Jayden James.

The singer was previously only allowed three monitored visits with the children per week, after she was committed to a psychiatric facility to treat an alleged bi-polar disorder. These did not include overnight visitation.

Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini admits the three-hour closed-court hearing went well for Spears.

No details of the changes have been released, but TMZ.com claims Spears has been awarded overnight visitation rights.

Parachini says: "There was a change in (Spears's) visitation status that was ordered.

"Britney's demeanour in court was businesslike. I think any judge is pleased to see progress being made by parties in a case."

The next hearing is set for July 15.
