A 70-year-old woman was checking the papers on January 12 when she realised she won the lottery. Doreen Hay immediately called her son, 38-year-old engineer, John Hay.
"John, you'll have to come over, I think we've won the Lottery."
"I checked the numbers three times."
"I couldn't believe it so I sat down and then checked again."
"It was then I realised we'd won £7.5m."
After phoning the National Lottery, John called his partner Susan, 39, a customer services representative. The couple plan to buy a dream home. His mother intends to move from her upstairs flat into a bungalow, treat her three grandchildren, seven brothers and sisters, and ex-husband, John.
