A 16-strong syndicate from Wimbledon are celebrating a lotto windfall after 15 years.

Clare Sadlier and her current and former colleagues matched five numbers and the bonus ball in the June 9 draw to scoop £75,667 - £4,600 each.

She said: "I had seen the email saying we had news and thought it was just £10.

"I was chatting away and checking the account when I found out.

"I was just in shock and had to hang up to get my husband to double check the account.

"Everyone is ecstatic, so happy."

One winner, Nicola Harvey, from Wimbledon, said: "I couldn’t believe it and assumed she was lying - but she was so excited that it had to be true.

"It is brilliant, I have been in it for about 15 years and this is a great win.

"I am going to put the win towards having my garden redone, it means I can have my dream garden."
