Scratchcard win brings building site manager to his knees

A £1 million National Lottery scratchcard winner got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend as soon as the windfall was confirmed.
Andrew Cunliffe, 37, bought the £100 Million Cash Spectacular Orange card in an Asda store while rushing to buy tea bags for his workmates.
Mr Cunliffe, a building site manager, is now planning his wedding with fiancee Natalie Cliff, 30, an event planner at Blackpool Tower.
He said: "We called Camelot and as soon as the lady on the end of the phone confirmed I really was £1 million richer, I just got down on one knee and proposed.
"It is something I have been wanting to do for a long time but I always worried I would not be able to give Natalie the wedding of her dreams. Now I can."
The couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, have not set a date for their wedding and have yet to decide on a venue.
They first met at Blackpool Tower while Mr Cunliffe was carrying out work there.
