Two couples from Cleveland are celebrating after they won one million pounds in the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle draw.
The couples play in a syndicate that normally only plays the lottery on a Friday, but by chance they put in for the Tuesday draw this week - only to discover they had scooped the one million pound prize.
Clare and Malcolm Sills had been on holiday with their friends Martin and Claire Tait when the couples decided to use the money they had won on a £40 scratch card to buy a ticket for the Tuesday draw.
The ticket, bought in local Stockton-on-Tees, won each couple £500,000.
