Newham mayor Mayor Sir Robin Wales has said the Newham and other councils are not against a "flutter on the horses" but added that he believes sectors of the gambling industry are doing "bad things on our high streets".

We are not against people having a flutter on the horses. We are not against gambling.

What we are against is the sheer scale of money that people can play very easily.
