PRIZE LOSER

HeadLine: PRIZE LOSER

The Mirror, 16/05/2001, p15

A BINGO winner was yesterday ordered to hand over half her record
£108,000 win to her former friend.
Lorna Anderson, 38, and Isobel Robertson, 40, pledged to “go halfers”
on any winnings.
But when Lorna scooped the National Game jackpot in 1997, the UK’s
largest bingo payout, she refused to share it.
Isobel sued. And a judge in Edinburgh said Lorna “was not telling the
truth” when she denied the agreement existed.
Last night Lorna, of Dunoon, Argyll, slammed the phone down, saying: “I
don’t want to discuss anything just now, thanks.”
Ex-neighbour Isobel, now living in Glasgow, said: “I am sad to have
lost a friendship but I am delighted at the outcome.”
