Lucky lotto winner quits day job to become ghost hunter with hubby

A woman has quit her job to become a ghost hunter with her husband after she bagged £10,000 a month on the National Lottery Set For Life.

Laura Hoyle, 39, who is a part-time paranormal investigator, left her day job in logistics to track ghosts full time with her husband Kirk Stevens, 37, after their big win.

The ghost hunter was left speechless after realising she had won the staggering amount of money which she originally thought was only a fiver in winnings.

Laura and Kirk, from Nottinghamshire, matched all five main numbers and the Life Ball in the Set For Life draw on March 1.

Recalling the moment they won, Laura said: "I was working from home that afternoon and stopped immediately to call Camelot.

"I was physically shaking as I told the lady, 'I think I've won the lottery!

"And the ridiculous part was that, as I waited for Camelot to call me back, I still had to join work meetings online.

"I could hardly speak, let alone make any sense!"

On top of ghost hunting, aeronautical engineer Kirk still works at Rolls Royce as he studies for his Master of Science degree.

The pair have been ghost hunters for a few years and share their spooky finds with their thousands of subscribers on their YouTube channel.

This year, they decided to hire out one of the UK's most haunted locations as part of their early Halloween celebrations.

Kirk, who also works as a St Johns Ambulance first responder, said: "We have always been busy people. This win means we are literally 'set for life' and we are going to fill every single second."

The brave couple spent a night in Nottingham’s Museum of Justice – which has been dubbed the most ghostly site in the UK by the TV programme 'Most Haunted'.

Together, they roamed the eerie museum and looked around the former prison, courtroom, and police station with night vision cameras in a bid to find some paranormal activity.

Kirk said: "It was a dream come true. We would never have been able to enjoy an event like this before the win."

They were even granted permission to have special access to the Sheriff's Dungeon which is closed off to the general public.

Laura said: "We experienced a lot. In the Courtroom, we had more activity in just that one place than we normally have on any visit.

"We also heard footsteps above us while in the Sheriff’s Dungeon even though we were metres below the surface sandwiched by sandstone."
