FIVE Alcester neighbours have been left stunned after learning they have won £180,000 – all thanks to their postcode.

The cash windfall comes after B49 5BB was announced as a winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Wednesday, November 17.

Four of the winners landed a £30,000 cash prize each while the fifth netted £60,000 thanks to playing with two tickets.

The winners opted to remain anonymous and People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Matt Johnson sent his best wishes.

He said: “A big congratulations to all those who have picked up a prize today in Alcester.

“I hope the win will help lift their spirits and they treat themselves to something special with the cash.”
