Residents of an East Lancashire town are £1,000 richer following their success in the People's Postcode Lottery.

The winning ticket on Tuesday (July 5) was in Blackburn, and those with a ticket and a BB1 1PH postcode were awarded the prize in the daily draw.

The winning postcode belongs to players in North Road.
