UK Factory Worker Scoops a Big Win

The future is looking sweet for chocolate factory worker, Paul Cole, 51, thanks to £1 million EuroMillions Raffle win on Tuesday, May 13, 2014.

Paul lives with his parents at Bartley Green, Birmingham, and has spent the last 35 years working on the Roses Chocolates production line at the Cadburys factory in Bournville, but he has no immediate plans to quit his job.

Paul discovered he'd won when he received an email from the UK National Lottery, but he initially thought someone was playing a prank on him and went to work as normal.

"I had to get into work for my night shift so the lady from The National Lottery called me back when I got to work and confirmed I was a winner and that someone would come out and see me the next day." Paul explained.

Not one for making a fuss, he just worked his shift as normal and only shared the news with his father Eric, 79, and mother Florence, 75.

"My parents were obviously delighted for me," he said. "I took my dad on a little shopping spree the other day and bought him a Skoda Yeti."

Cars are Paul's passion in life so he is also planning on buying himself a new motor and presently has his sights set on a £65,000 Landrover Discovery.

Since news of the win got out Paul admits he's received a lot of extra attention from the ladies, but, despite all the extra hugs and kisses, he has no desire to become tied down in a relationship.

"I am not searching for love now I have won the lottery," Paul said.  "I think I will just stick to my cars."
