Battle man scoops £17.8m Lotto jackpot

A LORRY driver from Battle is celebrating after scooping last week’s £17.8m Lotto Triple Rollover.

Matthew Breach, 37, won the jackpot in the draw on Wednesday March 9.

The former Claverham Community College pupil bought his winning ticket in Budgens in Hailsham on impulse after calling in to buy a pint of milk.

Matthew told the Observer he was still deciding how to spend his millions, but wanted a new car and was considering taking a holiday to Las Vegas.
