MORE than 300 gamers dragged themselves out of bed at midnight to get their hands on Grand Theft Auto 5.

The most eagerly anticipated video game of all time cost a rumoured £170m to make and looks set to shatter sales records.

Game in the Mall Pavilions in Uxbridge had queues stretching around the shopping centre as men and women waited to get their hands on the game.

How many of these people later called in work to say they are unwell to play on the game is not yet known.
