Nick Clegg’s Liberal Democrats are ­backing the Sunday People’s ­campaign to curb addictive high stakes gaming ­machines.

In another move away from the Conservatives, the party have joined us in demanding a £2 maximum stake.

They agree that fixed odds ­betting terminals (FOBTs) can wreck lives by swallowing up to £100 in 20 seconds on ­machine versions of casino games such as roulette, the Sunday People can reveal.
