Crewe and Nantwich - £90,000 bet on Conservative win.

From William Hill:

NINETY THOUSAND POUND BET ON TORIES TO WIN CREWE BY ELECTION

A WILLIAM HILL client has staked £90,000 on the Conservatives to win the Crewe & Nantwich by-election. After betting £40,000 at odds of 1/16 on Tuesday in a Hill's central London branch, the same man returned on Thursday to stake a further £50,000 at 1/25. With the Conservatives red-hot favourites, the man stands to get back £94,500 in total.

'This is the biggest ever bet staked on a by-election and it contrasts starkly with the fact that we have taken a total of just £385 for Labour to win' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

WILLIAM HILL CREWE BY-ELECTION ODDS: 1/33 Conservatives; 10/1 Labour; 50/1 Lib Dems.

Hills offer 8/1 that the Lib Dems will finish ahead of Labour, and 1/20 vice-versa.

Let's hope that Bruce Grobbelaar isn't doing the count.
