Another jackpot for Grimsby.

A GRANDMOTHER has reinforced Grimsby's reputation as Britain's luckiest town by becoming the fifth person to win the National Lottery jackpot.

Care home owner Jean Bryson, 46, scooped pounds 1,875,000 on Wednesday's draw to take the town's jackpot winnings to more than pounds 27 million.

Locals have dubbed the town "Winsby" and Lottery players from all over the country have travelled to buy tickets there amid claims that people in the town are two and a half times more likely to hit the jackpot than those living elsewhere in the country.
