A 28-strong syndicate is celebrating after scooping nearly £80,000 on the National Lottery.

The colleagues, who work for Morrison Utility Services, in Chatham, matched five numbers and the bonus ball.

The winning ticket was bought by Callum Crosier, 24, from Gravesend, at Moores Convenience in Mackenzie Way, Gravesend.

He said: "We've only been playing in a syndicate since February so we weren't expecting to win anything for a while so this is great.

"I'm a Chelsea fan so I've bought my season ticket in one go and a laptop but obviously we'd love to win really big. We'll keep playing and who knows, maybe next time it will be £79 million!"

Other members of the syndicate are either still deciding how to spend their £2,853 share of the £79,887 win - or have already spent it!

William Cook, 24, from Lordswood, is looking to buy an iPad and possibly a new car; Richard Seemann, 44, from Chatham, has paid off a new porch for his house; and Amy Beech, 20, from Maidstone, has bought an iPad, clothes and put some money away for a rainy day.

Holidays are top of the list for some while others are saving.

Lorraine Popple, 25, from Gillingham, is putting her share towards a deposit for a new home and Terry Ladley, 61, from Faversham, will invest his cash.

Donna Docherty, 38, from Rochester, is buying things for her home and Lucy Sherwin, 25, from Walderslade, is buying a car, getting some holiday spending money, clothes and giving her husband some cash to spend on ˜car bits".

The winning numbers from the Lotto draw on Saturday, May 12 were 1, 5, 18, 21, 23, 33 and the bonus ball was 20.
