A lottery winner who scooped £11million then lived as a recluse in Scotland has died at the age of 73.
Paul Maddison and his former business partner Mark Gardiner won over £22million in the lottery in 1995.
After the two shared the jackpot, Mr Maddison, who is originally from East Sussex, moved to Perth.
He reportedly died on November 28 just a few months after the death of his wife Evelyn, who was 62 years old.

The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service confirmed to the Daily Record that there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding Mr Maddison’s death.
Mr Maddison worked as the boss of a double-glazing firm before moving to relax in Perth following his big win.
The Lotto winner’s marriage with first wife Ruth broke down after she left him for another man just months later.
Father-of-two Mr Maddison moved into a luxury six-bedroom mansion called Lettertabor Lodge and hired cleaner Evelyn McGillivary.
They fell in love and the couple married on a Mauritian beach in 1997 on Valentine’s Day.
Mr Maddison spent £10,000 to renovate the mansion before selling it to a member of the Stagecoach transport business family for £450,000.
He was featured in the news in 1999 after he sued a small launderette business over a silk bedspread that had been stained with tea.
He wanted compensation of £953 after the dry-cleaners were unable to remove the stain and instead left it tinted in a pink hue.
The shop said that staff warned the Lotto winner that efforts to remove the stain were at his own risk as the item did not have cleaning instructions. It is not known who won the legal case.
