A factory worker from Hereford has vowed to 'sample the high life' and says he will take early retirement after scooping the £71 million EuroMillions jackpot.

58-year old Ade Goodchild, originally from south Wales, is now in the process of handing in his notice at the metal factory where he has worked for 24 years.

He plans to take his Mum and Dad house shopping and none of them will work anymore.

I'm not one of those winners who is going to say this win won't change me. There'll be no more shift work for me. I want to travel, find myself a lovely new home, go to top sporting events and try many other things besides.
