A teacher from Stockton was left amazed after winning a whopping £50,000 on the National Bingo Game at her local Mecca Bingo this month.

The mother-of-two, who wishes to remain anonymous, attended the club on Chandlers Wharf on Sunday, March 12, with a group of friends, for a night that changed her life.

After staking just £2, the newly qualified teacher was in shock when she realised she had a full house and immediately began to jump and scream. 

The winner has shared her good fortune with the friends she was with and plans to put the remainder down as a deposit for a new family home and holiday.
