EIGHT neighbours in a Ryedale village are celebrating after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The neighbours netted the windfall when YO17 6TG in Amotherby was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said: “Congratulations to our winners. I’m thrilled for them and I hope they have fun spending their winnings.”

This draw was promoted on behalf of Friends of the Earth which has received more than £9.1 million in funding thanks to players.
