Cambridge's online dictionary lists both UK and US pronunciations.  Neither
has an 'l' sound.  Can't check the OED, they charge.  They also concern
themselves with the history of words - are you sure you're not looking at
an archaic pronunciation?  Because I've never heard anyone speak that way -
even the accents that pronounce "water" as "wa'a".  Even they don't have an
L in those words.
