Poultry factory workers win £4.2m lotto

Four workers at poultry processor Moy Pork Ltd have won more than £4m on the lotto.

The jackpot of £4,197,764 was shared between five players in the syndicate, four of whom worked together at the state-of-the-art Anwick plant, near Sleaford. They will share the rollover prize with a second winning ticket.

The biggest winners were John and Christine Bell of Coningsby, who won £2.9m after taking on seven of the 10 lines when other workers dropped out of the syndicate. John Bell, who had previously won £4,000 on the lottery, no longer works for Moy Park.

Four of the lucky winners have revealed modest plans to each buy bungalows with their share of the rollover jackpot.

Northern-Ireland based Moy Park supplies own-label and customer branded chicken products to leading retail and foodservice customers across Europe. It was bought by the Brazilian Marfrig Group in November 2008.
