Hague's aunt fleeces National Lottery

The aunt of Conservative leader William Hague is celebrating her £856,648 National Lottery win - and plans to buy a prize ram for her Yorkshire farm.
After finding she had four numbers, she was looking forward to putting her winnings towards the cost of Christmas.
"I just went all shaky," she told BBC Radio 5 Live.
Her nephew William congratulated her good fortune. "It's very good, very funny," he said.
Asked if he would benefit too, he laughed: "We are a good Yorkshire family so I don't expect to see any of this money from Auntie Marjorie."
Mrs Longdin, a widow with four children and five grand-children, receives a quarter share of Wednesday's £3.4m jackpot.
Mr Hague's mother, Stella, said: "She does the lottery every Wednesday, but didn't see the numbers being drawn so only found out when she checked them in the paper.
"She rang all the family when she found out and was over the moon. William is especially pleased for her."
