Crime linked to gambling

As a one-off J4P decided to track the media for crimes related to gambling in the UK and the Republic of Ireland between November 8th 2017 and December 7th 2017 (one month).  We’ve no reason to suspect that this time period was any different to any other.  We tried and we hope there is no duplicaton of cases, but we recognise we may have missed some coverage and therefore cases.  There were 34 cases in total, so over one per day.  The following urls cover them:
