Congratulations and absolutely no sour grapes, honest, to seven staff at Chivas Brothers’ Scotch Whisky plant in Newbridge, Scotland. The group won £2.4m on the national lottery yesterday.

Organiser Carol Ann Fraser, who has been with the firm for 20 years, said: “It’s amazing. We’re all on cloud nine because this always happens to somebody else.” Each of the seven won £341,893 each, by matching all six numbers last Saturday.
