LUCKY neighbours on a Teesdale street are celebrating after scooping a combined £120,000.

Four residents on Dawson Road, in Barnard Castle, have today landed £30,000 each as their postcode, DL12 8JZ, was announced as the winner of the People’s Postcode Lottery Street Prize.

Among the winners from the street is Scott Docherty, 29, who celebrates his 30th birthday next month.

He said: “There’s just so much that I can do with £30,000 and I’m not quite sure where to begin but I think a holiday with my other half and our little boy seems like a good place to start. I’ll be treating the family and putting some away for a rainy day too.” Also picking up a prize is Tony Kent, 41, who was joined by wife Nini when the People’s Postcode Lottery team appeared on his doorstep.

Mr Kent said: “We can do so many things now that we’ve been meaning to get around to, like going on holiday and getting the house decorated – I’m over the moon.”

The remaining two winners were not available to receive their cheques, but their winnings will be paid into their bank account.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled for Scott, Tony and our other winners in Barnard Castle. I’ve loved meeting them and I’m sure they’ll have the best time spending the windfall.”
