An NHS ‘hero’ nanny who made bushes during the Cove epidemic has won more than £ 140,000 in the People’s Postcode Lottery.
And 72-year-old Fayyaz Keith Scott immediately gave the victory to his lucky grandchildren.

“Good things come to those who wait,” said Nani, who has lived in her home for 53 years.
Keith is considered a “local hero” because the former factory machinist made hundreds of bushes for NHS workers during the epidemic.
They were set up with the help of local care homes and hospitals, to protect staff during last year’s sharp decline in medical gear, including PPE.
“It was hard work but it didn’t matter – I knew it was for a good cause,” he said.
Although she “can’t believe” the victory, kind Keith has already distributed a fair share of the prize money among her grandchildren.
He said: “I just called them on time and have already paid 100 100,000.”
She will also pay for a life-saving defibrillator at her local post office.
Keith explained that with Allen having Parkinson’s, “we’re not going on a big vacation – instead we’re going to do everything we can to help others.”
I just called my grandchildren on face time and have already paid 100,000.
