Four neighbours in the North East are having a memorable Thursday after the Postcode Lottery team knocked on their doors.

Three of the residents in the TS19 9HZ Stockton-on-Tees postcode each won £30,000 and a £5,000 holiday, while a fourth player netted £70,000 in prizes as they play with two tickets.

Glenn and Pamela were among our lucky winners.

The Stockton grandparents couldn't believe it when they each received two cheques.

Glenn said: "I'm flabbergasted! I didn't think anything like this would happen to us. You read about it and see it on the TV, but you don't believe it will ever happen."

Pamela added: "Dreams do come true."

The retired couple thought their windfall would make a huge difference in their lives.

Glenn said: "It means a lot because we're both retired. We've only got our state pensions and our savings have started to go down.

"This money is a big help as we can relax a bit in our retirement now."

The couple has never been able to afford a dream cruise until now.

Pamela said, "I've always wanted to do a cruise, but money was a little bit tight, so we'll go on a cruise around the Med."

Along with treating their two daughters and six grandchildren, Glenn and Pamela are planning some home improvements after recently downsizing.

Pamela said, "We moved here because we don't want to move anywhere else, but because we've just moved in there's a lot that needs doing - a new bathroom, Glenn would like a bigger shed, and the greenhouse can be replaced because that's all patched up."

The pair are planning to celebrate with a cheeky tipple. An overjoyed Pamela said, "We're going to have a little drink, but it won't be tea or coffee."
