SIX lucky neighbours in Tillicoultry were each handed a whopping £1,000 after they won the People's Postcode Lottery's Daily Prize.

The residents of Chapelle Crescent were given their cheques early on Thursday, October 4, after the FK13 6NJ postcode was announced as the winner.

"Make sure you're playing with your postcode to be in with a chance of winning."
