Lotto winner, 64, wants to help son

A 64-year-old man has described his shock at discovering he had won more than £1 million on the National Lottery.

Graham Pyatt, from Mexborough, Doncaster, netted £1,460,850 in the Lotto draw on August 14.

Mr Pyatt, who is housebound with respiratory and mobility issues, plays the Lottery online every week.

He said: "I always choose one lucky dip but didn't check my account until Thursday.

"When it said I was a winner I couldn't believe it and had to get my son to confirm that it was true."

Mr Pyatt, who worked in power stations for 28 years in both Mexborough and Doncaster as a laboratories assistant, said he has no holidays planned with his 60-year-old wife Jean due to his health problems but would like to help out their son Steven, 30.

Mr Pyatt added: "I want to use the money to make sure that Steven and his family are looked after, which will make me very happy."
