Lottery win for couple

A HARROGATE district couple who scooped £1 million on the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle draw kept their winning ticket in a “sacred” antique teapot over Christmas until they could claim their prize.

Judy and Frank Whitmore, from Tockwith, put the teapot on top of a kitchen unit after finding out about their win on Christmas Eve.

Mrs Whitmore, 62, said: “We just wandered down the river with great big smiles on our faces and occasionally laughing.”

They successfully claimed their prize from Camelot last Friday.
