A MAN whose wife won £1million on the lottery spent the money on a brand new car and set of custom-made golf clubs.
Ceri Ann Roscoe-Roberts, 42, bought a ticket for Friday's special EuroMillions draw before forgetting all about it.
But when she woke up again the next day she found out she'd won.
And her husband Paul, 45, a golf course manager in Bangor, has already treated himself to a new set of golf clubs.
Paul said: "The first purchase was a set of golf clubs believe it or not.
