A SYNDICATE of 16 postmen from Preston are celebrating after matching five numbers and the bonus ball in last Saturday's National Lottery. The lucky lads won just over £3,850 each after their magic No. 9 ball appeared as the bonus.

Syndicate leader Jason Wiggins said: "It was Sunday morning when we found out. Five of us were working at the time when a colleague's wife rang and broke the news."
