Tory Bet Punter Collects £240k

A Glasgow pensioner who bet £30,000 on a Conservative majority in the general election has collected his£240,000 winnings.

The man placed his bet at odds of 7/1 in a branch of Ladbrokes in the city centre on April 29.

The bookmaker made an appeal for him to come forward after the election because he had yet to collect his £30,000 stake and £210,000 winnings.

Alex Donohue, of Ladbrokes, said: "I can confirm that the gentleman has been paid in full and has specifically asked not to be identified.

"Once again, we congratulate him on his record-breaking election win."
