Lotto winner fell asleep and missed winning moment

A painter and decorator from Edinburgh, who won more than £7 million on the National Lottery, missed the moment his numbers were called out after falling asleep in front of the television.

Willie Sibbald, 48, from Moredun, only realised he was a multi-millionaire of Saturday night's Lotto Rollover draw when he spotted his winning numbers during adverts.

Mr Sibbald said: "It's been such a whirlwind I've not had time to really think about what I will do with the money, but I will probably learn to drive and get myself a car.

"I played the National Lottery every week before I won and, to be honest, I think I will keep playing."
