You've just won £6.9million in a rollover lottery and about to face the press - so what do you do? Personally I think I'd run for the hills, but Debbie Lawton from Withernsea decided she'd better tell her sister about her success. The moment Debbie phones her sister to break the news has been captured on video...
Debbie seems reasonably calm when explaining to her sister that she's won nearly £7million - mind you when she knew she'd won the jackpot she simply went back to work to finish her shift. You sense though that her sister at the other end of the phone is a little disbelieving of the news as Debbie has to tell her it's the truth.
The win however is truly life changing for this family as it will enable them to improve facilities to look after their daughter. The video below reveals why:
The whole family seem very grounded - Mr Lawton fancies just a cup of tea later on to celebrate the experience. His other two daughters have also been told they have to keep working. Paul explained his philopsophy to The National Lottery:
"We're very normal people and will remain so, but it makes me feel very happy inside to know that those I love the most will be helped by this incredible stroke of good fortune. We couldn't be more delighted. It just goes to show that extraordinary things can happen to ordinary families like us."
