Baby arrives as Thornbury couple celebrate £1m EuroMillions win

A THORNBURY couple who won £1 million on EuroMillions had to delay picking up their prize when their new baby decided to arrive.

Andy Symes and Natalie Metcalf scooped the UK Millionaire Maker prize in the lottery’s February 1 draw. They realised they had won the next day but, while out looking for a new house to spend the winnings on, Natalie went into labour.

The couple, who also have a two-year-old son, had just sold his pushchair, with a view to replacing it with a double buggy.
