BOSSES at a Suffolk housing partnership have confirmed that some members of its staff scooped more than £2.5million in the National Lottery.

Employees at Havebury Housing Partnership in Haverhill were keeping tight-lipped about the jackpot joy but it was this morning confirmed that a company syndicate had one of the two lucky tickets sharing a top prize of £5,260,450 in last Saturday's draw.

While details still remain sketchy and the winning staff members continue to shun publicity, it is believed that every member of the syndicate is likely to be celebrating a payday of more than £110,000 each.

It is thought that the syndicate contained more than 20 workers - predominantly based in Haverhill with one or two believed to be employed in the company's main office in Bury St Edmunds.

Havebury chief executive, Steve Cook, confirmed that some employees had a “wonderful win” on the National Lottery. He added: “We are absolutely delighted for them.”
