Listen to your mother

Teenager wins £53,000 on lottery after finding ticket when mother forced him to clean bedroom

Slovenly Ryan Kitching, 19, reluctantantly clean his bedroom after being nagged by mum Susan when he unearthed 12 old tickets in his drawer he thought he had checked.

He was about to bin them but decided to take them to the supermarket to double-check - and one ticket contained five numbers and the bonus ball netting him a cool £52,981.

Delighted part-time Tesco worker Ryan said yesterday: "I am totally speechless - it was the happiest day of my life easily.

"My mum had been nagging me for weeks to tidy my room so I started cleaning up and found a pile of old tickets.

"I was about to bin them but at the last minute I got this strange feeling that I should get them checked.

"Next time she nags me to tidy my room I won't need telling twice."
