A father and son have both won over £100,000 in the People's Postcode Lottery.

Retired taxi driver Ken McNeill, from Shoreham, called his son Nigel McNeill, at work after finding out he had won £133,332.

His son, who also lives in the seaside town, revealed he had also won the same amount.

They are just two of a dozen winners in Crown Road after postcode BN43 6GD was announced as the winner of the "Millionaire Street" prize draw.

The million-pound prize was divided into shares of £66,666, however Ken and Nigel each had two tickets, which doubled their winning amount.

Nigel, a dad-of-two, said: "That's just changed my life - £133,000! I can't believe it."

"The Postcode Lottery phoned me and said they'd be visiting my street with a surprise, but I couldn't miss out on the work.

"But when I saw the amount, I packed up my tools and drove home.

"It might not be a million, but to me, that is like winning a million.

"To be able to buy my own place and treat my kids is just a huge weight off my shoulders.

"I booked a holiday for me and the kids, but it got cancelled due to Covid, so I just had to keep my head down working in the hope that I could re-book it at some point.

"I'm over the moon knowing my parents have won as well.

"They've done a lot for me and to now know they're set means a lot."

Nigel's dad Ken, 70, who moved to Shoreham three years ago to help his elderly father, said he signed up on the same day his wife Jenny retired from her job at Southlands Hospital in December last year.

The grandfather said: "When we moved, I felt like Shoreham was going to be a lucky area for us. And it's definitely turned out that way.

"It was my birthday on the 25th of January, and I didn't think I'd ever get this big a present.

"Nigel said I should give it a go, so I guess I have him to thank.

"I even signed up with two tickets because he plays with two."

Ken and his wife Jenny plan to use some of the prize money for a break after a challenging six years.

He said: "I ended up in intensive care in 2018 after lots of medical problems and ended up having to retire. So, we'll definitely go on holiday and give something to our grandkids."

Ms Perrin said: "Our community members see Soundcastle as a safe space and a reason to get out of bed every day."

"Thanks to the players of People's Postcode Lottery we can continue to use music as a tool for change in the mental health sector and provide a supportive environment for those who need it."
