A BLEAK February has been brightened up for two Tranent neighbours who each scooped £1,000 thanks to their postcode.

The Babylon Court residents netted the windfall when EH33 1ES was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery yesterday (Wednesday).

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners.

He said: “What brilliant news to start the day!

“Congratulations to our winners, I hope they go out and treat themselves with their winnings.”
