A couple from Mansfield have had the "purrfect" win, scooping a million pounds on a lottery scratch card all thanks to their pet cat.

Andrew and Paula Hancock had forgotten to buy food for their ginger Tom called Shortcake. While they were out shopping they also got their hands on the winning ticket.

Sarah Clark has the story.
