Corrie's Yankee hanky-panky

While the new bookies settle into Rosamund Street, someone should tell them a thing or two about running a betting shop.

Now, I don't know anything about gambling, but I know someone who does and they tell me that the bookies have got it wrong - not once - but twice this week.

First off, they paid Jack out on a Yankee. This is a bet on four horses and Jack only named three.

And secondly, Blanche asked to put a 75p bet each way on a horse and handed over 75p. For a bet each way, she should be paying £1.50, and possibly plus tax too. Ok, I'll take me anorak off now, but think on.
