A COUPLE are celebrating a £1million lottery win which will help them care for their disabled son.
Neil and Sue Smart will buy a much-needed bigger home thanks to their EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker prize.
The youngest of their three children was born with scoliosis, which makes the spine twist or curve to the side.
Now aged nine, he also has learning difficulties.
The family, who live in a three-bedroom home in Seaton, Devon, aim to buy somewhere with more space for him and give him any extra help he may need.
Builders’ merchant worker Mr Smart, 50, said: “When I logged in, I immediately saw a message which said ‘Congratulations, you’ve won £1 million’.
“I thought it was a scam and called my daughter to read it. We both thought it couldn’t be real.

Mr Smart adds: “People have said, ‘Well done, it couldn’t happen to a nicer family’, that it is nice to see ordinary people win, which is all lovely to hear.
“The win, especially the new home, will make a difference to our whole family for years to come.”
They also plan a donation to the Ronald McDonald House charity which has supported them.
