Scottish Couple David and Carol Martin Named as £33m Lottery Winners

A husband and wife are planning an early retirement after scooping £33 million on the lottery, half of the UK's biggest ever Lotto jackpot.

David and Carol Martin, both 54, from Hawick in the Scottish Borders, are celebrating scooping the prize after matching six correct numbers in Saturday's record draw.

The massive jackpot of just over £66 million was the result of 14 rollovers.

New rules stipulated that once the amount went over £50 million it would have been shared between the next tier down of winners if no one matched all six numbers. The other ticket remains unclaimed.
