Fire disrupts gambling on Gibraltar

An explosion and fire at a generator at Waterport Power Station on Gibraltar left most residents without power for several hours and caused disruption to an important part of the Rock’s economy, online gambling.

William Hill, Betfred and Ladbrokes are amongst those gambling companies based in Gibraltar due to its low tax rates.

Easter Sunday is a busy day of sport, but for about two and a half hours people were not able to place their bets.

the fire, caused by a technical failure, was quickly extinguished and there are no reported injuries.
