A young couple who won a lottery jackpot of more than £45m have said there is a “lucky vibe” in Nottinghamshire after they became the second winning couple from the county in less than a month.
Cassey Carrington and Matt Topham, who are both 22 and from Stapleford near Nottingham, won the staggering total of £45,160,170.50 in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday.
Their win is the UK’s seventh-largest lottery payout and follows hot on the heels of Mansfield husband and wife Gareth and Catherine Bull, who won £40m in January.
Miss Carrington told a Press conference in South Normanton, Notts, yesterday: “I do think there is some sort of luck in Nottingham. I think we’ve got some lucky vibe going at the minute.”
