The winning ticket.

A Devonshire man has told us of the moment he won the National Lottery.

Dennis Rubbery, 67, was knocked spang out of his slippers when the news came that he was a winner.

"I couldn't ruddy believe it," he beamed, "it's changed my life, really it has. With all of the worry and strife over cutbacks and pension worries, this'll sort me out good 'n proper!"

The retired road-sweep has been entering the lottery for over 10 years, without picking up a single penny. "We love great stories like this," said Shirley Robyormunny, head of public relations for Camelot, "it's lovely that we can give a bit back to a truly deserving character!"

"I can't see what all the fuss is about.." Rubbery's daughter, Moonlight, told us.

The £5.46 will be paid directly into Mr. Rubbery's account later today.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
