A YOUNG couple from Stapleford due to marry later this year have been revealed as winners of a £45m EuroMillions lottery jackpot.

At a press conference in Derbyshire this afternoon Miss Carrington said the pair's first thoughts were how they could use the money to take care of their parents.
She said she has only played the lottery about half a dozen times and put the win down to it being "my lucky day".
She said: “I did have a feeling I was going to win.
“The store where I work had won an incentive for delivering excellent sales. We had been presented with £10,000 which was shared between staff.
“After that I just felt like it was my lucky day and decided to get a EuroMillions ticket.
They follow in the footsteps of Mansfield couple Gareth and Catherine Bull, who won a £40m EuroMillions jackpot on January 20.
The couple are now seventh in the list of the largest jackpots ever to be won in the UK.
