Lotto Seamus's festive tragedy

Ulster lottery millionaire Seamus Duffy has told how his family are suffering a Christmas of pain after his nephew died from a drugs overdose.

Teenager Ryan McElwee was killed eight weeks ago by his addiction to mind-bending party drug mephedrone — dubbed ‘meow meow’.

Derry dad-of-six Seamus — who scooped £4.5m on the lottery last year — told Sunday Life that his death left a void at the family table this Christmas.

He said: “Ryan’s dad is devastated. His family have been up at the grave this week to lay a wreath."
