A builder who won a £76 million EuroMillions jackpot has vowed to finish all the jobs he agreed to before his life-changing win.

Andrew Clark drove round with the ticket in his van for six weeks before realising he had won.

He and partner Trish Fairhurst, 51, went public over the £76,369,806 win just days before Christmas after finding out about the draw, which took place on November 2.

They have since bought a four-bed house, an £80,000 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 and a Nissan Qashqai, as well as splashing out on cars for relatives.

But builder Andrew, from Boston, Lincolnshire, has reportedly told friends and colleagues he will honour all of the jobs he agreed to before he became a multi-millionaire, before taking early retirement to enjoy his winnings.

Plumber Gordon Jackson, 68, told The Mirror: “Andy is a very conscientious bloke… He’s going to honour the jobs he’s started.”

Gordon told the newspaper he probably wouldn’t be quite so conscientious, but added: “But he’s going to finish the jobs because he is an honest guy, a good bloke. He’s a good lad, dead straight. Fair play to the guy.”

Grandfather-of-three Andrew scooped the 12th biggest win ever in the UK after buying the ticket in his local Post Office.

He referred to himself as ‘the man who nearly lost £76 million’ after revealing he stuffed lottery tickets in the sun visor of his van and only checked after Trisha nagged him to.
