Gambler suing bookies for losses!

#1
A compulsive gambler who is suing bookmaker William Hill for his £2m losses has also been allowed to seek damages for personal injury.

Greyhound trainer Graham Calvert, 28, from Houghton-le-Spring, near Sunderland, claims the company failed in their "duty of care".

He said he had not only lost money but also his wife, health and livelihood.

The bookmakers denies any wrongdoing and said it cannot be held legally liable for Mr Calvert's losses.

But he claims he was allowed to place bets after asking the company to close his account under a self-exclusion scheme.

A High Court judge ruled on Wednesday he can also seek further damages.
