  • Description

    A syndicate of fourteen men working at the same British factory collected a record football pools win of GBP406,339 Sterling (975,214 U.S. dollars) on Tuesday at a ceremony in London.

    Luck had changed for the men, for only 18 moths ago they were all made redundant at the Leeds instrument panel factory at which they work, since it was closing down.

    They later got their jobs back when the firm re-started, and after this pools-win it could have a labour shortage ahead. The fourteen are almost its complete work-force.

    The firm can take heart however, because in London some of them at least said they would hang on to their jobs.
