A teenager from Midlothian has cleaned up on the National Lottery after finally cleaning up his messy bedroom.
Ryan Kitchin scooped more than £50,000 after finding a winning lottery ticket in the room that his mother had been asking him to clean for weeks.
The 19-year-old had no idea he had successfully picked five numbers and the bonus ball for the draw made on February 8 and was about to bin the ticket when he had second thoughts.
The part-time supermarket worker took the ticket with him to work and had had a colleague check the numbers
. They knew he had won, but couldn't tell him how much.
It wasn't until Mr Kitchin later called lottery operator Camelot that he discovered he had scooped £52,891.
The youth plans to pay off the loan on his car and take his mother on a much-needed holiday.
