A Penzance couple say winning the lottery means they can now buy a home in Cornwall.

Paul and Jenny Marsh scooped £389,921 after matching five numbers and the bonus ball over the May Bank Holiday.

They moved to the Duchy just under a year ago and have been renting. Now they say the win means they can afford a permanent home, although Paul secretly admits it won’t be easy to beat the one they are living in now: “We have been very lucky with the house we are renting. It’s in a lovely rural location and has a superb kitchen – which is top of Jenny’s wish list – even though I do most of the cooking!”

Paul has bought himself a car: "It's a BMW but it's a year old. It's very nice but nothing flash, just a pleasure to drive."

Jenny is splashing the cash too: "I hit Marks and Spencer's and spent a considerable amount of money just dumping everything in a trolley, got it all home and most of it didn't fit or I didn't like it, but it was lovely - just spending that money."
