Watch Derek Webb, the founder of the Stop the FOBTs campaign and its wider initiative, the Campaign for Fairer Gambling, on the BBC’s Sunday Politics Show (40mins in).

Derek joined presenter Peter Henley to express the Campaign’s recommendations around FOBTs and how local people can take action in their area.  Explaining that the current Minister for Sport at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, Hugh Robertson has the power to make the changes needed to the FOBT regulation now, but is lacking the evidence he needs. “Common sense says there’s a problem, he just needs the evidence”, the Campaign is urging people to get in touch through the website to share their experiences.
