     Peterborough Couple Score With Amazing
               Jackpot Lotto Win!
A couple from Peterborough have netted a fantastic £1,350,973 share of the
Lotto jackpot from the draw held on Saturday 22 September 2007.

Barry and Alison Hubbard (both 41) were at home on Sunday morning when
they decided to check the Lotto results on Teletext, before Barry left to watch
the local football team he coaches. Barry said: “I knew they were our numbers
immediately as they are a mixture of family birthdays and house numbers. It
was an amazing feeling to see them on screen having played them for so
long. I think I was in shock and Alison shed a tear or two for joy.”

Barry has been coaching the same team, Whittlesea Athletic U15s for seven
years and despite the shock of the win he headed straight for the touchline to
cheer his side on to a 4-3 win.

Alison takes up the story: “Sunday mornings are always busy for us, so
despite seeing our numbers on screen, I don’t think the enormity of the win
sunk in until later in the day. Now we can start to make plans for the future,
although I know Barry is planning on staying at work as well as coaching the
local boys football side.”

Barry works for Whittlesea Brickworks and says all his friends and workmates
have been fantastic since news of the win first broke. He said: “Now we just
want to sit back, relax and decide how we are going to spend our win”. Apart
from looking after the family – the couple have two teenage children - both
Barry and Alison would like to buy a new house and had been house hunting
even before the win.

Alison has also dreamt of taking a family holiday to Cuba so their Lotto win is
just the ticket.

Barry purchased his winning ticket from the Post Office in Whittlesea near
Peterborough. His winning numbers were 3, 12, 15, 18, 30 and 31. This
Wednesday there is an estimated £2.5 million jackpot. This Friday (28
September 2007) there is a massive estimated £88 million EuroMillions
