A COUPLE who won £100,000 on a lottery scratch card were robbed at knife-point in their home — ten days after they posed for pictures sipping champagne with a giant cheque.

Father-of-three Lee Davies, 27, and his partner Carryann Copestick, 26, were woken by three masked raiders who burst into their home.

They made off with £11,000 worth of jewellery, including a gold chain worth £4,000 and a £900 bracelet, three smartphones worth more than £1,500, eight rings and a necklace.

Shipping clerk Mr Davies said. ‘We were fast asleep in bed, and people came in waking us up like: “Where’s this, where’s that? Where’s the gold, where’s the money?”’

He was hit with an iron bar before the raiders, dressed in black, took what they wanted and left.

‘I was fearing for my life,’ he added. ‘It would have been worse if the kids were awake, because it could have frightened them forever.’

A shaken Miss Copestick said: ‘It was nice winning the money but it’s brought a lot of trouble with it.’ The couple, of Wolverhampton, are offering a £2,000 reward for the return of the jewellery. West Midlands Police are investigating.
