An unemployed cleaner and a bank worker from Dalkeith have become the first openly gay couple in Scotland to publicise a massive lottery win.

Darren Morgan and Graham Muir, who have been together for 10 years, scooped over £850,000.

Graham bought the winning ticket at The Co-operative store in Newtongrange – using the same five numbers he has used for the past five years. The 47-year-old has been scraping by for months on unemployment benefit of £67.50, but is now considering treating himself to a Rolex watch.

But Darren (36), who shares a charity-owned house with Graham, has already splashed out on a £40,000 Range Rover Evoque.
