A multi-million-pound lottery-winning couple from Withernsea have vowed: it’s a case of carry on working for us.

Paul and Debbie Lawton said they like their jobs too much to give them up, despite scooping nearly £7 million from Saturday’s jackpot double rollover.

But the pair do plan to book time out to take their family on a Las Vegas holiday, to celebrate Mrs Lawton’s 50th birthday this year.

In addition, Mr Lawton, a 56-year-old lorry driver, and care worker Mrs Lawton are planning to move home to a disability-adapted big bungalow. Here the Lawtons will carry on caring for their 28-year-old daughter Tracey, who suffers from cerebral palsy.

Mr Lawton broke the news to his wife after checking his lucky numbers the morning after the draw was made. He coolly phoned her while she was caring then asked his wife to return home from work for a short while.

They later called a family meeting to announce the £6.9 million win.

Mr Lawton said that Debbie will carry on caring and he will make himself available for casual hours.

He hoped that the win will “enrich” his daughter Tracey’s life more than anything else.
