The boom in mobile phone betting has helped bookmaker William Hill post a 13% rise in profits after an "outstanding" performance from its online arm.

Favourable results at key events such as the Grand National and the Cheltenham Festival also helped revenues climb 11% to £627.8 million and pre-tax profits reach £143.3 million in the six months to June 30.
