Warrington Postcode Lottery jackpot

A father and daughter living in the same house in Warrington each won £200,000 in the People's Postcode Lottery.

Keith Cunliffe, 48, and daughter Charlotte, 20, were shocked when their postcode, WA1 3TS, was revealed as the full winning postcode in the October Postcode Millions competition.

My heart dropped when I saw that it was our postcode that was drawn as the big winner. I want to buy a house and this money means that it is possible. I'm 21 next week and it's the best birthday present ever.

– Charlotte, a customer adviser for BetFred

Some 166 residents shared a prize pot of £2 million which was distributed at a cheque presentation at The Park Royal Hotel, Warrington. Half of that - five prizes of £200,000 - goes to players in the full winning postcode, Princess Avenue, and the other £1 million is divided among other players in the winning sector, central Warrington.

People's Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery where players play with their postcodes to win prizes while raising money for charities and good causes across Great Britain and internationally.

Russell was stretchered off during Wolves' 22-19 win over Widnes. Russell suffered a heavy concussion and the lost of two front teeth, and Smith thinks the game's disciplinary board have been inconsistent in their view of the incident.
