Teesside gambling addict 'had dark thoughts'

A gambling addict from Teesside who won and lost £250,000 became so desperate he considered suicide.

Michael O'Grady, from Middlesbrough, has told Look North how he became hooked - and how it almost destroyed him.

He was addicted to roulette machines - the controversial terminals some want banned - and he admits to gambling £600 in six minutes.
