Bookies slash White Christmas odds
Will it be million pound Boxing Day blues for the bookies?
With another white weekend expected, William Hill have been forced to cut the price of a White Christmas further from 6/1 to 5/1 in London with Scottish cities now as short as 3/1.
"This is the shortest price we have been for a White Xmas as early as November, and if it snows bookies will be facing an eight figure payout. Punters will be queueing outside our shops on Boxing Day, provided they can get past the snow drifts to do so!" said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
