High profile corruption in sports is in the news at the moment, with suspected irregular betting activity around a red card issued to Motherwell midfielder Steve Jennings.
Two members of the Association of British Bookmakers reported concerns on unusual betting patterns during the Motherwell versus Hearts Football match, one of which is online betting company Blue, a subsidiary of the Rank Group.  British Media report that one of those bets was a GBP500 stake placed at 10-1 odds.
The matter lies with the UK Gambling Commission's Sports Betting Intelligence Unit who will ascertain whether the issue merits an investigation.
