A HAMPSHIRE grandmother is “on top of the world” after hearing she has scooped £2,450 in last week’s Daily Echo Find the Ball competition.

Julia Thoresen from Botley said she had only ever won a £15 prize before so was delighted to win the nearest miss prize.

She said: “I feel on top of the world, it is absolutely fantastic.”

Mrs Thoresen, who has been married to husband Roger for 53 years, said she would now be able to spend a little extra cash on an upcoming cruise they are taking with their grandson.

Don’t miss Saturday's’s Daily Echo to be in with a chance of winning the jackpot, which currently stands at £36,000.
