A great grandfather from Penrith is hoping to go on the holiday of a life time after winning a share of the Lotto jackpot on Wednesday.

Robert Bruce was one of three Lotto players to win £727,308 after matching all six main numbers.

The 85-year-old, who is originally from Kirkcaldy but moved to Penrith in 1967, says he is still in shock over his win. He plans to use the money to go on a family cruise.

“The first thing I will be doing is treating my family. I’ve always wanted to go on a family cruise so this could be my chance to make that dream a reality.

“I have to keep pinching myself and telling myself this is really happening and that my family and I have really won the lottery!”
