£3 million Lotto win for Loughor golden couple Tommy and Carol Lisk
A SWANSEA couple have become Lottery multi-millionaires just before their golden wedding anniversary.
Tommy and Carol Lisk, who celebrate 50 years of marriage on March 23, scooped a £3,083,088 jackpot.
The couple, from Loughor, matched all six numbers in the Lotto draw of Saturday, March 9.
They say they have no immediate plans for their windfall other than to make life more comfortable for the families of their sons Mark and Stephen who live in the same area.

Tommy, aged 77, was an underground coal miner for 36 years before retirement in the 1980s.
He said: "We're still coming to terms with it. You go all those years thinking what you would do if you won the Lottery – then your mind goes blank!
"We've already got a couple of local golden wedding celebrations planned for friends and family and I'm sure the win will make the food and drink taste even better."
Carol spent much of her working life as a hospital domestic. She said: "Tommy told me about the win when I got out of bed on Sunday morning.
"He'd checked the numbers a few times against a results slip he got at the local garage and also on his computer.
"I didn't believe him at first and it's taken me a few days to start coming to terms with it. Looking back, it was a lovely Mother's Day present."
Tommy and Carol married in 1963 in Carol's home town of Neath less than a year after meeting on Rotherslade Beach in Gower.
They now spend much time with their family and have a close circle of friends with whom they enjoy socialising, bingo, music and coach trips from two local social clubs.
They regularly play The National Lottery and have had a number of wins of around £100.
Their winning numbers were: 12, 19, 25, 36, 44, 46.
The £6,166,176 Lotto jackpot on 9 March was shared between the Lisks and one other lucky ticket-holder.
