Punter gets £8,000 less that expected after bookie mistake

Oshane Grant placed a £100 accumulator bet on a series of World Cup qualifiers last week. The 42-year-old from Easton in Bristol wanted to bet on France, Serbia and Argentina all scoring at least three goals in their qualifiers.

The staff at his local bookmakers Coral quoted him odds that would make a win worth £9,250. But they had made a mistake.
