UKIP Leader Betting Suspended

WITH STEVEN WOOLFE, favourite to be the next elected Ukip leader, taken to hospital following an 'altercation', bookmakers William Hill have suspended their betting market on who will become the next official leader of the Party.

'Mr Woolfe has been very well backed to win the UKIP leadership contest and at one stage today his odds went from 1/2 favourite (66% chance) to 1/8 (88%chance), but we don't feel it is appropriate to continue betting when his state of health is unknown.' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
