87 YEARS OLD MAN WINS 18 MILLION IN NATIONAL LOTTERY
A father broke down in tears as he celebrated winning a £18million Lotto jackpot after he and his wife told their children that winning 'was just a matter of time'.
Dennis, 87, and Shirley Banfield, 83, announced the life-changing win along with their daughters Tina, 54, and Karen, 51, after matching six numbers on a Lucky Dip.
An emotional Mr Banfield revealed that he and his wife had been buying tickets for years in a bid to make sure his children were 'financial secure forever'.
He also said they were in no rush to leave the family home they have lived in for half a century, but was 'quite tempted' by a chauffeur-driven car due to his 'dodgy knee'.
The family, from Bristol, said the shock win would help them travel to international sporting fixtures, buy new cars and enjoy a stress-free future.
