Family called Fortune scoops £3.7m lottery jackpot

A family from Scotland with the name Fortune is celebrating after scooping a share of the lottery jackpot.

It has been reported the Fortunes, from Larkhall, South Lanarkshire, won £3.7m in one lotto draw last month.

Janet Fortune, 84, her son Clark, 48, and two daughters Rona, 56 and Jean, 58, split the winnings between them.

A National Lottery spokesman was unable to confirm or deny the reports. He said no details about winners were released unless they had signed a consent form.

When asked about the winnings, Rona Fortune refused to comment.

Janet Fortune's carer said the 84-year-old was unwell and not in a position to speak to the media.
