A SUPERMARKET worker bagged a super sum as she won £32,000 at bingo.

Now the 50-year-old WGC resident is considering how to splash her cash after landing the jackpot.

The mother-of-four said: "I was gobsmacked to win. Everyone in the club was clapping and saying 'well done' but I just sat there in a daze.

"I'm going to buy a new car, hopefully an Astra, because I've never been able to afford one before."

She collected the National Bingo Game prize of £30,250 together with the Regional prize of £2,530 and the house prize of £150.

She completed a full house in 40 numbers, the lowest call in any of the 470 clubs playing nationwide.
