Brian Caswell, a 74 year old EuroMillions winner, smashed up a car while road testing it in Bury. Brian Caswell who scooped £25 million playing the EuroMillions Lottery back in June took a luxury £55,000 Range Rover out for a test drive but returned it with over £6,000 worth of damage.

The elderly lottery winner had been lent the super-charged Range Rover Sport to get a feel for it while he waited for his brand new one to be delivered. A source at Stratstone Land Rover in Bury, where Mr Caswell borrowed the vehicle from said “He was really apologetic, but wouldn’t say how it happened.They continued by saying “Brian said he wanted it so he could drive his wife round in style, but looking at the damage I bet it was a bit of a bumpy ride.

The damage caused by the mysterious accident left the £55,000 Range Rover needing a new side panel and wing mirror plus a re-spray but any bill faced by Britain’s third largest lottery winner will be nothing more than pocket change to him. When asked about the accident Brian’s wife Joan simply replied “You’ll have to speak to Brian about that”.

The retired sales director from Bolton, who became Britain’s third largest lottery winner when he won £24,951,269 playing the EuroMillions lottery claimed that he would not have selected his winning numbers had it not been for his late mother-in-law saying “I always used to take my mother-in-law shopping on Fridays and she always used to buy tickets for herself and her grandchildren. Unfortunately we lost her last year but I kept on buying those tickets ever since because of her. It’s her legacy.
