A pair of lucky lottery winners who won a million pounds have returned to the very store where they bought their winning ticket.

Mother and daughter Brenda and Julie Page from Radlett scooped the mega prize last year.

They only knew about the win after an appeal in the Borehamwood Times to find the lucky owner of the unclaimed ticket.

Brenda always bought their tickets from Dipa News in Shenley Road but only checked the results once a month.

Borehamwood Times:

Nearly a year after their lives changed, the pair returned to Dipa News as part of a National Lottery celebration.

Since its first draw in November 1994, the National Lottery has created 5,000 millionaires including 28 in the WD postcode.

And to mark the milestone, the lottery are delivering gold limited edition playstations.

Julie said: “Mum always buys our tickets in Dipa News, four weeks in advance, and only checks them when she buys the next four week batch which is why there was a delay on discovering our magical win.

“She still buys our syndicate tickets in the store, it’s been lucky for us before and hopefully with the addition of the gold playstation it will be lucky again.”

Borehamwood Times:

Mr Shah from Dipa News added: “It’s amazing to think there are now 5,000 lottery millionaires who have all enjoyed that same winning moment as Brenda and Julie.

“Seeing the gold edition, which is evidence of a local winner, gives everyone some feel good factor and hopefully they’ll realise it could happen to them too. We know our customers well, and to see them win is simply magic."
