US couple claim share of Powerball lottery jackpot

A couple from the US state of Missouri have claimed their share of a $587.5m (£366.6m) Powerball lottery jackpot.

Mark and Cindy Hill, of Dearborn, will split the record prize with a winner from Arizona, who has not come forward.

Mr Hill, a 52-year-old mechanic at a meat-processing plant, and his wife, a former office manager, said they might now adopt a second child - after adopting a Chinese girl five years ago.

Lucas de Jong reports.
