Earlier today BBC Radio4 aired a feature on greyhound racing at Walthamstow stadium and how its closure will affect trainers and bookies.

Description by BBC Radio4: “Alan Dein reports on the closure of Walthamstow greyhound racing track and hears from some of the people whose livelihoods depend on the declining greyhound racing business. While bookmaker Joe Bennett is philosophical about the ups and downs of the business, trainer Paul Rich is more pessimistic, forced as he is to now race his dogs in Kent, a far cry from the glory of Walthamstow.”
