A very British lottery player can only say one word when informed that he had indeed won £7,864,529 – Lovely!
Philip Dunning was clued in by his long-time partner’s friend that the number they always played may have won the lottery, which prompted his call to the lottery offices. He had a hard time finishing his shift at work the next day with the winning ticket in his pocket; he managed to hand in his notice though.
Now the happy couple plans to purchase a new home and upgrade their ride to an Aston Martin. They have not decided what to do with the rest of their fortune.
