Manchester shop worker jailed for £1m lottery fraud

A shop worker has been jailed for 30 months for falsely trying to claim a million pound lottery prize that belonged to an elderly customer.

Farrakh Nizzar told Maureen Holt she'd won nothing when he scanned her ticket at a store in Oldham, but he later tried to claim the Euromillions jackpot himself.

Ed Thomas reports.
