£38M the 'perfect retirement present'

The wife of one of 12 Northamptonshire bus drivers whose syndicate won a £38 million EuroMillions jackpot has said the win is the perfect retirement present for her husband.

Penelope Gillion said her husband Charles, 64, who is originally from Corby and had worked for Stagecoach as a driver for five years, had planned to retire later this year.

"Today is a normal day. It won't faze us. The family comes first and there lots of things to do."

She said the 12 winners had been taken away somewhere on Monday morning but would not disclose any further details.

Each syndicate member will walk away with about £3.1 million.

Mrs Gillion said reports that some of the winners had stopped work mid-shift were "rubbish".
