Jackpot win for Island friends

Two Island residents are celebrating after scooping a million pounds in the Euro Millions draw.

Dave Skillen from Pulrose and a friend matched the numbers in one of last week's lottery draws and have had the win confirmed.

The ticket was bought at the Spar shop in Governor's Hill and Dave says the pair are still getting used to the idea of being in line for a £500,000 pay-out each.

It's understood they'll be travelling to the UK in the next day or so to receive their winnings from Euro Millions operator Camelot.
