MPs debate over fixed odds betting machines

MPs have been debating whether to take action against Fixed Odds Betting Terminals where up to £300 a minute can be gambled.

James Petherick, from Wiltshire, blames the machines for "ruining his life" and is campaigning for a change on his online "diary of a compulsive gambler".

He told BBC Points West reporter Paul Barltrop his story.
