A council worker has expressed his delight after winning the Made In Bury Weekly £2,000 Draw.

Peter Crowe, a customer service representative at the local authority, was presented with a giant cheque after winning with ticket number 20674.

Peter, who supports callers with enquiries ranging from council tax to welfare, has worked for the council for nearly 12 years and has been involved in the draw close to when it started after one of his colleagues scooped the prize. 

When the draw team surprised him to tell him he had won, he said "Oh my! I absolutely love you!"

Peter is set to go on holiday to Tenerife in June with his partner so the cash boost will be used for extra spending money on the break.
