Two people in Carlisle are celebrating after each winning £1000 just by living in the right postcode.

The neighbours received their lucky win when their postcode, CA3 0DQ, was announced as the daily winner of the People's Postcode Lottery.

Judie McCourt, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador, sent her congratulations to the winners.

She said: “I’m so happy for our winners, what a great surprise to start your day.

"I hope they treat themselves to something nice with their winnings.”

It was promoted by the Wildlife Trusts which have received more than £11 million in funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery.
