Cleaners Scoop A Million Pounds On The Lotto

A group of school cleaners are celebrating a £1 million lottery win.

Now, they are each planning how to spend their £55,555.55 share.

Mother and daughter Margaret and Claire Roberts have booked time off from cleaning St Matthews Academy for a sunny break in Spain.

Claire, 31, said: ''The girls in the syndicate are from all walks of life and ages range from 24 to 63, so this money really will help us all in different ways.

''The timing could not be better. I've just booked for myself, mum and my daughter to go on an all-inclusive holiday to Spain.

''I can now pay that all off without worrying and look forward to a fantastic summer.''

The rest of the group said they will spend their winnings on holidays, new televisions and decorating their homes.

The syndicate won the cash in the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker draw on March 6 after Margaret, 55, bought their ticket at the News Stand on Dockhead Street.

Their winning EuroMillions Millionaire Maker code from the draw was CPF291509.
