A couple from Swansea who were due to mark their golden wedding anniversary have an extra reason for celebration after winning over 3 million pounds on the lotto.

Tommy and Carol Lisk have no immediate plans for their windfall, other than spending the money on their family.

The initial reaction was that it was a joke. I checked the numbers and told Tommy to phone our son. It's unreal... I just can't take it in. It doesn't happen to people like us!

The couple's golden wedding anniversary falls on March 23.

They matched all six numbers in the draw on March 9th.

Mr Lisk was a coal miner for 36 years, while Mrs Lisk worked as a hospital domestic.
