A great-grandfather from Truro has hit the lottery jackpot, winning £13.5 million in last week's Lotto Rollover.
Three different people told Peter Congdon, 67, it was his lucky day after he won a few pounds on scratchcards three days in a row. When he got lucky on the Rollover his first thought was that he had won £25, before double checking with his daughter that it was the magic six.
“When she agreed with me, I came home and put my ticket in a book in the kitchen and made myself a cup of tea. Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep that night.”
Mr Congdon, a widower, is a father-of-three, grandfather-of-ten and great-grandfather-of-one in a close-knit family who all live nearby. He says he'll be treating himself and his children to new cars, but this year's family holiday won't be changing - they'll be going to Butlin's, as they have for 40 years.
Mr Congdon is the latest winner from the region, joining recent winners Jenn Burston from Exeter who won £3 million at Christmas, and a syndicate group from Plymouth who won last summer.

He's the latest winner from the region, joining recent winners Jenn Burston from Exeter who won £3m at Christmas, and a syndicate group from Plymouth who won last summer.
All we know is that the great-grandfather is from Truro - his identity will be unveiled later today.
Christmas has come early for Jenn Burston, a part-time administrator and mum of two young children, who has won £3,062,272 on the National Lottery.
The South West's newest millionaire did not match all 6 numbers, but got 5 and the bonus ball, and scooped a share of the £15 million jackpot after a quadruple rollover.
Mrs Burston had only returned to work a month ago after maternity leave, and has already been back since her huge windfall.
She and her husband Ian plan to buy a bigger home, book another holiday and look after their close family.
...my numbers were circled! I thought hang on a minute, I think I’ve won £3,000 and took my phone to go and show my husband.
All my husband Ian kept saying was, ‘are you sure it’s your ticket?’ ... Once we realised it was £3 million neither of us knew what to do next – so I called my mum and my husband called his dad, and by this time, it must have been after 11pm.
I keep asking myself, just how do you spend that sort of money? I’m sure with £3 million in the bank, the knack will come for us!
