They decided to make a U-turn and come back to dry land.

Their numbers had come up on the Lotto draw on Wednesday 29 May 2013, scooping the happy pair a whopping £6,123,395.

Speaking at a press conference at the Haven Marina, Ipswich, the couple, who have been together for 39 years, said they celebrated by using their pensioners' bus passes to travel into Newcastle for a gin and tonic.

Mr Brown said: "We stashed the ticket in the locker under the chart table on board and figured it would be safe there for the journey back - there aren't many pirates in the North Sea.

"We certainly won't be going crazy but we will look to do something good with the money.''
