FOUR lucky people in Hereford and Worcester have scooped £100,000 each thanks to NS&I's June Premium Bonds.

More than 300 people in the two counties have won prizes this month ranging from £100,000 to £1,000.

Five people have won £50,000, two winners walked away with £25,000 while another 12 people scooped £10,000.

Unfortunately, nobody in the two counties won the £1m top prize - there were two winners this month from Southampton and Surrey.

Jill Waters, NS&I retail director, said: “Premium Bonds are a fun way to start saving - customers are in with the chance of winning any one of our more than 4.9 million prizes.

"People up and down the country can start their Premium Bonds journey with an initial investment of just £25.”

Premium Bonds is an investment product issued by National Savings & Investments.

Unlike other investments, where investors earn interest or a regular dividend income, bonds are entered into a monthly prize draw where people can win between £25 and £1m.
