Carrot gold

Brian Caswell, 74, is an amateur gardener living in Bolton, UK, who had always had trouble trying to grow carrots.

His allotment has never given him any success with carrots, so when he won 25 million on the EuroMillions lottery draw, he knew exactly what to do: hire an expert to teach him how to grow better carrots.

“What I’m going to do now,” said Brian, “is bring in a professional and say, ‘Right, sort that out.’’
