Bin cleaner wins £1.3m on the horses
A wheelie bin cleaner from Nottinghamshire has won over £1.3m on a £2 horseracing bet.
Craig Brazier correctly predicted six winners across selected UK races, sharing a prize of more than £10m with seven others as part of the national Scoop6 competition.
The 39-year-old from Mansfield clinched his huge prize after Chatez was victorious at Haydock on Saturday.
He said his winnings of £1,342,599 would go towards a new house and a family holiday, although he intends to keep his job.
"It's the best two quid I have ever spent,” he said.
"I was jumping round the living room and dropped to my knees in shock when the horse won.
"I could not breathe when I realised I won the money – I just cannot believe how big this is."
