The lack of the second and third contact points in this planetary system makes it difficult to obtain accurate measurements of its physical parameters. Aims. By using new high-precision photometric data, we confirm that WASP-67 b shows grazing eclipses and compute accurate estimates of the physical properties of the planet and its parent star. Methods. We present high-quality, multi-colour, broad-band photometric observations comprising five light curves covering two transit events, obtained using two medium-class telescopes and the telescope-defocussing technique. One transit was observed through a Bessel-R filter and the other simultaneously through filters similar to Sloan griz. We modelled these data using jktebop. The physical parameters of the system were obtained from the analysis of these light curves and from published spectroscopic measurements. Results. All five of our light curves satisfy the criterion for being grazing eclipses. We revise the physical parameters of the whole WASP-67 system and, in particular, significantly improve the measurements of the planet's radius and density as compared to the values in the discovery paper. The transit ephemeris was also substantially refined. We investigated the variation of the planet's radius as a function of the wavelength, using the simultaneous multi-band data, finding that our measurements are consistent with a flat spectrum to within the experimental uncertainties. Description: 5 light curves of two transits of the extrasolar planetary system WASP-67, observed on 2012 June 4 and 2013 June 22, are presented. Four of the datasets were obtained using the MPG 2.2-m telescope, GROND camera and filters similar to Sloan g', r', i', z', at the ESO Observatory in La Silla (Chile). Another data set was obtained using the 1.54-m Danish telescope, DFOSC camera and Bessel-R filter at the ESO Observatory in La Silla (Chile).
