A shop assistant from Kent has been found guilty of fraud after trying to con a Lottery syndicate out of its £79,000 winning ticket. He could face jail.
Imran Pervais paid out just £10 to the Chatham-based syndicate even though they had matched five balls plus a bonus number.
The winning ticket was later found screwed up under the counter of the convenience store in Gravesend where he was working. Tom Savvides sends this report from Maidstone Crown Court.
