Eight people were arrested after police made a teatime swoop to break up an illegal gambling syndicate.

The seven men and one woman — aged between 19 and 60 — were surprised in the 6pm raid on an apartment in Wadihana, Singapore.


Officers confiscated books and records of football, horse racing and public lottery betting as well as laptops, desktop computers, a fax machine, calculators, handphones and telephones.

Singapore cops said the syndicate was believed to have been in operation for the past year, with estimated takings of £23,000 a day, three times a week.
