Lucky Bingo Jackpot Winner - Unlucky Robber Dead

A 67 year old grandmother from Pendlebury, Salford won an amazing bingo jackpot of £128,000 at a local land based bingo hall. The sudden windfall was shared with her daughter and both could not be happier. The happiness that should of followed days afterwards, instead turned out to be anything but. The events that followed after her colossal win made her more lucky in a very unlucky situation.

John Bennell, 27 and three of his partners in crime broke in a house thought to be the bingo winner detectives speculate. The four men entered the house around midnight where Bennell was greeted by a stab wound to his chest. The three other men carried him out and left him slumped over next to a tree on Hospital Road where he later died.

For the unnamed grandmother she is left shaking after the incident and can't help but wonder what might of happened had they found her home. The police urged her not to worry but she fears they may come back to complete their mission.

As for Peter Flanagan, 39 who stabbed the intruder, he was arrested and let go pending further investigation. Detectives claim this is not the first altercation for Bennell after breaking into the home of a professional gambler. Perhaps a stiffer penalty by the court will discourage the robbers from attempting such a crime in the future.

In a commendable character, the grieving father who lost his son made a statement and apologized for his son's actions.
