Dorset's Lib Dem Euro MP's hit out at plans to ban online live betting.

Sir Graham Watson's described the proposal as completely disproportionate as many people enjoy placing bets while watching sport  and the vast majority don't engage in any kind of match-fixing.

He's fearful it will only push people onto less secure, unregulated websites.

His party have refused to back a policy drafter by Conservative MEP Ashley Fox and claims the betting industry's integrity body, the ESSA also has concerns.
