Two lucky locals were several thousand pounds richer after they discovered that they had been big winners on the National Lottery.

One winner of £20,000 bought their ticket at Mc Conville’s NisaLocal in Ardboe and the shop was quick to send their congratulations out over Facebook to the lucky owner of the ticket.

The second unknown winner of £35,000 is believed to have bought their ticket in the Cookstown area.

A spokesman for the National Lottery was unable to confirm either win as they do not keep records of prizes less than £50,000, but he did send his congratulations to the two local winners.
