Lotto lout Carroll sells mansion

Lotto lout Michael Carroll's neighbours are likely to be the ones popping the champagne corks - after he sold his mansion

Lotto lout Michael Carroll's neighbours are likely to be the ones popping the champagne corks - after he sold his mansion.

The 27-year-old former binman bagged £9.7 million when his numbers came up in 2002.

He went on a huge spending spree, buying the five-bedroom luxury home in Swaffham, Norfolk, for £340,000 and blowing another £400,000 on an extension, pool and jacuzzi.

Mr Carroll and his pals used the vast garden outside as a banger racing track - to the annoyance of his well-to-do neighbours.

But soon his fortune was gone and when the gas and electricity was turned off, Mr Carroll reportedly left the house. He has now sold it for just £142,000, according to reports.

It is believed the house is in need of extensive renovation.

Father-of-two Mr Carroll - who once called himself the King of Chavs - is estranged from his wife Sandra Aiken who he will share any money made on the house sale with.
