A Cornish couple who won a million pounds on a scratchcard tell Pirate FM they will carry on working.

Lee Orchard from St Austell bought the lottery card in Roche last week on a whim, with another five pound win.

His wife Laura said it still had not sunk in: "I just still couldn't believe it, I thought it might have been a fake. So yeah, it's weird, very weird.

"We'll put the money away, maybe invest the money in something so it can accumulate so they can put it towards a property when they're older or something."

Lee said they would not give up their jobs: "Yeah, I'm going to work the same. I work for my family business, so just going to do the same there, not worrying about rent every week, and you know, just stuff like that really. Just comfort really, take the stress and worry away."
