A resigned couple have won a £58m lottery big stake – regardless of the triumphant ticket being erroneously tore in two.
Fred and Lesley Higgins, from Aberdeenshire, coordinated every one of the numbers in the Euromillions draw on 10 July.
In any case, when Mr Higgins checked his numbers, the shop right hand at first revealed to him it was anything but a champ, tore up the ticket and discarded it.
At the point when the machine at that point instructed them to contact Camelot, it was immediately recovered from the receptacle.
When he returned home and checked the numbers, Mr Higgins found they had scooped a sum of £57,975,367.
Mr Higgins, 67, and his better half Lesley, 57, from Laurencekirk, were standard players of the Tuesday and Friday draw.
