An MP says his town has been unfairly singled out after a report claimed it was a hot spot for high stakes gambling.
The report by the Campaign for Fairer Gambling said that in Rochdale - one of the most deprived boroughs in the country - people had blown £72 million on gaming machines.
But even though it's nowhere near the highest amount in the UK, Rochdale's MP feels the findings are too negative.
From Rochdale, Sarah Rogers reports.
