Three Port Talbot neighbours have won £1m between them, sharing half of the town's second £2m prize in a year on the People's Postcode Lottery.

Father-of-six and granddad-of-13 Peter "Brummie" Summers, 53, a local transport manager, won £500,000 with his winning postcode SA12 7RT.

Neighbours Jeff Davies, 52, and Sarah Edwards, 47, each won £250,000.

A further 305 winners received cheques ranging from £715 to £8,580.

Mr Summers, originally from Birmingham, said will make life "so much easier" for him and wife Pam, 49, a local receptionist.

A holiday to India is something that they had been wanting but never thought they would achieve, he said.

"I can't believe it, we never win anything, but you honestly have to be in it, don't you?

"I have all my children and grandchildren to spoil and it's Pam's 50th birthday next year.

"I'm sure we'll be having a great birthday party for her now," Mr Summers added.

His two neighbours did not even know the Summers played the subscription lottery until the win came through.

Mrs Edwards, who only moved to Port Talbot 11 months ago with husband Gary and their four children, currently has four jobs as a kitchen assistant.

"We work hard and never get a break, this win is just unbelievable. I can't explain what a difference it will make," she said, adding that a trip to Disney World in the US with her young grandchildren was on the cards.

Third big winner steel worker Mr Davies and wife Rosemary also have holiday plans.

"We've been to Tampa Bay [in Florida, USA] before and it would be amazing if we could go back there together," he said.

A year ago Port Talbot student nurse Lauren Teesdale and her grandmother Sylvia Pask won £400,000 on the same lottery.

That was part a £2m prize fund shared by residents living in SA12 6 who took part.
