The Northern Echo:

Grandparents Glenn and Pamela were among the lucky Stockton winners.

Gleen 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 to 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."
