Football Association claims match-fixing not widespread in England
English football's governing body has insisted match-fixing was not widespread.
The comments from the Football Association came as chiefs from major sports held talks with the government on tackling the problem together.

Horne made the comments after discussions with representatives from cricket, horse racing and the two rugby codes.
The meeting was arranged swiftly after a series of arrests relating to English football.
