A few weeks ago, we discussed whether it was OK for someone in the media to accept work from a bookmaker. We talked about the increasing “gamblification” of football and asked whose responsibility it is to regulate the industry and help people who have become addicted.

Lots of you got in touch – including someone who’s overcome a serious addiction and is still dealing with the consequences of it – but is helping others who have found themselves in the same situation.
