A Cumbrian couple are celebrating after scooping £1million in the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker draw.

Helen and Derek Garnett’s lottery win comes just months after 38-year-old Helen received the all-clear from cancer.

She says she is now looking forward to living the life she always dreamed of with her husband, 52-year-old Sellafield worker Derek and 14-year-old daughter.

Helen is a shop assistant at The Northern Line, a homeware and gift store in Ulverston, and says she has no plans to give up work.

Helen has already been out to choose the car of her dreams, a dark grey Mercedes and a new home is on the shopping list for the couple.

She had been out celebrating her dad’s birthday on the night of the draw and decided to go online to check her ticket when she got home.
