Mansfield couple claim £40.6m lottery jackpot


A Nottinghamshire couple have won £40.6m in the EuroMillions lottery.

Gareth, 40, and Catherine Bull, 35, from Mansfield, said they had only told a few people about their win, which came from a Lucky Dip ticket on 20 January.

Mrs Bull said she thought her husband was "pulling her leg" at first and did not believe him when he told her they might have won the EuroMillions.

Mr Bull said top of his shopping list was a box at Manchester United while Mrs Bull wants a hallway carpet.

But the couple said they had no intention of leaving Mansfield.
