Lottery winners to splash out on yacht and good causes

A couple who won the National Lottery say they plan to by a new yacht and give money to good causes.

Speaking at a press conference, Mrs Brown said: "We probably couldn't spend this much in a lifetime so we're looking forward to having a great deal of fun giving it to good causes."

The couple, who do not have children, downsized their house to buy their current yacht and now hope to upgrade to a £350,000 model and possibly a new house.
