London street sweeper cleans up with £4.5m Lotto win!
Here’s a feel-good story to brighten your Tuesday morning. A road sweeper from Camden, London has nabbed a £4.5m
…but still clocked in for his last day of work!
Joseph Whiting, 42, couldn’t believe it when his six numbers popped up on his computer screen. After polishing his glasses and going back for another peak, it became apparent that he had indeed nabbed the life-changing bonanza.
However, Mr Whiting turned up to work at 5am to make the roads of Camden sparkle: probably getting them ready for his new Ferrari.
Whiting, who has worked as a street sweeper for 14 years, told the
: "I don't know how I got through the day. My mind was all over the place. You can check 100 times and you are still not sure."
Despite handing in his notice yesterday morning, his boss was magnanimous: "My line manager was made up for me," said Whiting.
"I enjoy it, it isn't a bad job and I work with a good team. However, I won't miss getting up at four in the morning."
Too right, mate. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bloke.
