A warehouse worker is celebrating after getting two winning lines on the Lottery and scooping £500,000.

Andrew Gowling, 47, said he could not believe his eyes when he heard one line had won £10 and the other £500,000.

The 47-year-old warehouse worker of Darlington, County Durham, had just lost money at Redcar Racecourse when he realised he had won.

He now plans to go part-time, get a new car and go to Brazil next year for the World Cup.

Damian O'Neil reports.
