£53m jackpot winners want to help local community

A retired couple have become one of the country's biggest ever National Lottery winners after bagging a "life-changing" £53 million.

Richard and Angela Maxwell, both 67 and from Coningsby near Boston in Lincolnshire, banked £53,193,914 after winning the EuroMillions jackpot in Tuesday's draw.

The couple are still thinking about what to do with the huge windfall but have already decided to upgrade a planned holiday to New Zealand - by taking the whole family first-class.

Sports fan Mr Maxwell said he will now be able to retire completely to enjoy following Boston United and big sporting events, and play golf and bowls.

He is also going to treat himself to a Range Rover, while his wife plans to splash out on designer handbags and shoes.

It's a life-changing amount of money - £1 million would have been amazing but £53 million enables you to do so much, not just for you, but those around you. Our local community is really important to us, in particular helping young people in the area. The win will enable us to spend more time getting involved, as well as give financial support.

– Richard Maxwell

The inquest into the murder of a pensioner from Wisbech is to be resumed today - more than two years after her death.

Una Crown, 86, was found at her home in Magazine Lane in Wisbech. She had been stabbed multiple times and set on fire.

Last summer, a new team of detectives from Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Units re-launched the investigation in the hope it would lead to a breakthrough in the case. Nobody has been charged yet.
