MILTON Keynes has been given disappointingly long odds in the race to become England’s latest city.

According to bookmakers William Hill, MK is ranked at 16/1 behind Reading, Medway, Perth and Middlesbrough.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said: “Since we opened the betting six months ago, we have seen pretty much one way traffic for Reading. Saying this however, the outsiders have been known to finish strongly.”
