In a word, Scrabble has a new champion.

THE UK's only professional Scrabble consultant was toasting his success last night after "semiarid" helped him on his way to the national championship.

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".
