British couple win a million in lottery for 2nd time

The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) A couple from northern England has defied the odds again by winning a million pounds ($1.5 million) in the lottery for a second time.

David and Kathleen Long won the money and a car in the EuroMillions Mega Friday Draw, having already scooped up 1 million pounds in 2013.

Lottery operator Camelot said Wednesday the couple beat odds of 283-billion-to-1.

David Long says he played his usual numbers and watched in amazement as they came up. His wife, Kathleen, had to verify them. Since then, it's all been a blur.

The retired truck driver says the win means he'll probably take his wife on a cruise as he's run out of excuses not to go now. A party is also planned.
