Christmas windfall: Man finds $86 million lottery ticket in his van

A British man hit one of the largest lotto jackpots in the country's history -- but left the golden ticket unchecked for weeks in a pile of papers in his van, according to local reports.

Andrew Clark, 51, only checked the ticket because his partner and her niece badgered him after they heard about a local unclaimed prize, he told Sky News.

"Trisha kept telling me to check the tickets, and her niece Louise, who I was building an extension for, was also in on it once she'd heard about the unclaimed prize in the news," he said.
