Ladbrokes refuses to pay out on odds given before Spurs' match against Chelsea

Fans were left fuming as Ladbrokes refused to pay out odds of 175/1 that Tottenham would beat Chelsea 2-1 with a Jermaine Defore goal - because of a mistake in store.

Locals lapped the offer up but were left upset when the shop in Northumberland Road, Tottenham, only paid out on the correct odds of 35/1, but the bookies insisted they were in the right. “I’m gutted,” Mark Gooding, 51, told The Sun after he put £5 on the outcome. He was only paid £180 and not the £880 he thought he had won. Ladbrokes said sorry for the error but insisted they would not pay out on wrong odds that arose from a “clerical mistake”.
