A man won 81,000 from a 20 stake - because he was too late to place his original bet.

The man, who asked not to be identified, had planned a seven-horse accumulator, reports the Sun.

When he got to Ladbrokes in South Shields, Tyne and Wear his first selection was already running - and ended up third.

Bookies classed that as a non-runner, leaving him a six-horse 10 each-way accumulator. All his other horses won pocketing him 81,390.24.

Ladbrokes's Nick Weinberg said: "Had he arrived in time for the first race, all seven would have been included and his winnings would have been minute in comparison.

"He was dancing round the shop with joy. It's a clear case of it being better late than never."
