A Scottish couple have become Britain's biggest lottery winners after scooping £161 million in the EuroMillions lottery on Tuesday.
Colin Weir, 64, and his wife Chris, 55, from Largs in Ayrshire, won the jackpot, which means they are now 430th in the Sunday Times UK Rich List – just after the Beckhams.
Mrs Weir said: "We had bought five lucky dips as the jackpot was now so big. I started circling the numbers I had matched but wasn't doing very well.
"Then on the fifth line all the circles seemed to join up. I had all of them but couldn't believe what I was seeing. I checked three or four times before going back downstairs to find Colin. He knew immediately by my face and tone that something was up."
The couple plan to buy homes for their son, Jamie, 22, who works in a call centre, and daughter, Carly, 24, a photography student, as well as travelling to China and Australia.
"We have both always wanted to see the Great Wall of China and Colin would love to stand at the foot of Ayers Rock in Australia. We also love galleries so this gives us the chance to visit those in Paris and in Russia," Mrs Weir said.
The Weirs said they stayed up all night after realising they'd won.
Mr Weir said: "All our lives we have lived within our means and been comfortable. We appreciated that this money brings about a whole new life for us and our family. We now have so many opportunities to explore but we don't want to rush it. For us it will be a gradual change withchoices to be made."
He added: "When we first realised we had won, it felt like a dream. Everything went into slow motion. But it feels like a good thing; something we should not to be afraid of but for us to enjoy with the children.
