William Hill has taken lead over Ladbrokes

I have just been reading the news item headlined “Coral finds head of marketing” (MW June 23) which in paragraph three notes: “Coral… is the third-largest bookmaker in the UK after Ladbrokes and William Hill.”

Since its recent acquisition of several hundred Stanley Leisure betting shops, in a &£504m deal, completed on June 19 this year (pending approval from the Office of Fair Trading), William Hill has overtaken Ladbrokes to become the number one bookmaker in the UK.
