Yvette Cooper Labour Leader Odds Slashed

YVETTE COOPER has been cut from 10/1 third favourite to 5/1 second favourite to become the next Labour leader by bookmakers William Hill - who have doubled their odds for hot favourite Jeremy Corbyn from 1/7 (stake £7 for potential £1 profit) to 2/7 (stake £7 for potential £2 profit).

'All of a sudden money has begun to pour on Yvette Cooper after a period of several weeks during which she attracted almost no betting interest' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. 'Over 75% of the bets and 80% of the money we have taken on the market today has been for her'
