 Harry Potter's betting bonanza
British bookmakers are convinced the plot of the next Harry Potter novel has been leaked.

Internet bookmaker Blue Square has been bombarded with bets on an obscure market as the death of Hogwarts school's headmaster Dumbledore from punters residing in the English town of Bungay, Suffolk, where the book is being printed.

Ladbrokes refused to take the bets, insisting "there are obviously people out there who have read the manuscripts."
