The month has started with a bang for one lucky person in the city.

A woman in Norwich has won £1m in the Premium Bonds draw for March.

She has £50,000 in Premium Bonds - the maximum amount - but won the jackpot on a £10,000 bond bought in July 2015.

Her number 250KD320334 was randomly selected by an Electronic Random Number Indicator Equipment or ERNIE.
