Donald Trump's surprise US election win has won £100 for one Welwyn Garden City man - a bet he was desperate to lose.

Ian Green of Essendon Gardens, who placed £25 at four to one on the Republican candidates several weeks ago, told the Welwyn Hatfield Times before the poll he dreaded the prospect of winning.

He said: “I would like at least a little good to come out of something so bad, so if he does win I will be donating my £100 winnings to a local women’s refuge.

“If he loses, I will make a donation matching my stake of £25.”

The Welwyn Hatfield Times will put Mr Green, a 41-year-old IT manager, in touch with the trustees of the borough’s women’s refuge.
