US school staff in Mega Millions lottery win


A winning ticket that claimed part of the record $656m (£413m) US Mega Millions jackpot will be shared between three public school employees.

Lottery officials in the US state of Maryland said "the three amigos", a woman in her 20s, a man in his 40s and a woman in her 50s - would each claim $35m after taxes.

The three, a special education teacher, an elementary school teacher and an administrator, each bought 20 tickets for their syndicate.

They have chosen to remain anonymous but Lottery director Stephen Martin revealed what the winners thought they may do with their money.
