The Cherryhay residents won £30,000 each after their postcode was announced as a winner with the People's Postcode Lottery.

Six of the players scooped £30k each, while one winner, who plays with two tickets, scooped £60k.

Catherine Kane, aged 49, said she was shocked when she found out she had won.

She said: "This doesn't happen to the likes of me. I'm in complete and utter shock. Not in a month of Sundays did I expect to win anything, let alone £30,000.

"My husband and I have been looking for a new house for the past couple of years, so this money is now going to go towards a deposit.

"I also want to go on holiday to the Caribbean. I've never been before, but now I can afford to go.

"I know lightning doesn't always strike twice, but I'm going to keep playing, as I want to continue supporting charities and causes, and, if I win again, even better."
