After an embarrassing technical glitch on the Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown, where gamblers saw their bets voided, Betfair has now agreed to make almost £100,000 of payments to angry punters.

The betting exchange operator is honouring the wagers of some gamblers who bet on the race, won by Voler La Vedette on December 28.
