Two Rutherglen neighbours have got their Tuesday off to a terrific start after scooping a cash prize of £30,000 each thanks to their postcode.

The Hillend Road residents won the money when G73 4JS was announced as a winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on today, Tuesday, October 27.

The lucky duo chose to remain anonymous but the prize will be paid into their bank account.

They won as part of People’s Postcode Lottery’s special October campaign, where one postcode is announced as a £30,000 prize winner every day.

All the players in the postcode win £30,000 for every ticket they hold.

They say lightning doesn’t strike twice but it’s the second time this year a Rutherglen postcode has won the prize.

In August, seven neighbours won a share £240,000 when G73 2BD came up trumps.

Sending their congratulations was People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt.

She said: “It’s fantastic to hear two Rutherglen neighbours have won £30,000 each today.
