Man dies ten days after Lottery win.

A Birmingham man has died ten days after winning pounds 46,000 on the National Lottery.

Retired civilian police worker Mr Robert MacPhersonchecked, aged 69,no address given died during his annual winter holiday in Scotland.

But the manner of his death in a Scottish hospital has angered his family who claimed they were not warned how ill he was.

Mr MacPherson and his Scottish cousin Mrs Margaret Melrose had bought a joint lottery ticket and won pounds 92,000 which they divided.

His son, also Mr Robert MacPherson, last night said he was not told how serious his father's condition was and he would have travelled to be by his side had he known.

His father suffered a burst artery.
