One of the punters arrested rubs her hands together with glee after wasting £500 on her bet

Hundreds of Housewives have been arrested after police acted on a tip-off from a leading bookmaker that the women were neglecting their domestic duties, and nipping out to place their yearly flutters on the Grand National, it has been reported.

Merseyside Police say they made nearly three hundred arrests after they received information from William Hill that "many women in aprons" were visiting a betting shop in the centre of Liverpool.

Scouser Hill, who makes books in his factory opposite the betting shop, which cannot be named for legal reasons, complained that the women should be at home, and said:

"They should be gettin' on with their cookin', cleanin', washin' an' ironin', not gallavantin' aroun' the bettin' shopsh!"

Housewives are known to regularly stake thousands of pounds of their pocket money on the Grand National unbeknown to their hardworking husbands who are out grafting all week, blissfully unaware of their partners' indescretions and wastefulness.

A police spokesman said:

"They should be gettin' on with their cookin', cleanin', washin' an' ironin', not gallavantin' aroun' the bettin' shopsh!"
