In a word, Scrabble has a new champion.
Allan Simmons, 51, of Berwickshire, put his 30- plus years of Scrabbling to good use, showing he was no "yutz" on his way to "bogart" the title. The words - meaning "fool" and "selfishly take and keep" - were among the highlights of his 3-1 win over younger contender Craig Beevers, 27, of Stockton-on-Tees.
His top score was 68 points for "semiarid".
