A star Scrabble player has been banned for three years.

The Association of British Scrabble banned Allan Simmons - who had written books on the popular board game - after he was accused of cheating during the matches, the Mirror Online has reported.

this comes after three witnesses have claimed they saw Allan put a hand with freshly drawn letter tiles back into the bag to pick a new selection of letters in a bid to win the competition.
