Couple who won £101m EuroMillions jackpot tied up and robbed by gang at their luxury home – The Sun

A COUPLE who landed a £101million EuroMillions jackpot were tied up and robbed by a gang at their luxury home.

David and Angela Dawes won in 2011 in their third draw to become Britain’s seventh biggest winners.

They were attacked at home, a mansion owned in the 1960s by Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck.

David, 56, was struck in the face and he and Angela, 52, were bound using cable ties.

The robbers fled with jewellery and around £20,000 cash in the couple’s Range Rover.

The car was found burnt out nearby after last April’s raid in Etchingham, East Sussex.

Details emerged in a retrospective planning bid for security cameras.

Papers lodged at Rother district council reveal seven CCTV columns had been erected following a “burglary at the property”.

The columns also carried ­thermal imaging equipment and speakers to warn off trespassers.

Police said the investigation was axed due to lack of evidence — and three men who were arrested told they face no action.

Former food plant supervisor David, who with his wife gave away a third of their winnings, declined to comment.
