Camelot (the lottery) are having a huge re-launch of the lottery this week.

As part of their campaign huge lottery balls are turning up in a few unusual places.

Ironbridge residents woke up this morning to find 3 huge lottery balls in the river Severn.

School children from the local Coalbrookedale school were wide eyed to see these balls completely out of context in the peaceful gorge.

Bill McClements, finance chief from Telford and Wrekin Council said 

"this helps the whole of Shropshire not just Telford and Ironbridge"

he went on to say 

"The Ironbridge gorge has received £millions over the years in Lotter Grants and tourism is a vital part of our economy. If this can raise the profile and awareness of Telford and Ironbridge then I will be delighted"

If you didn't manage to see the balls then here is a short video clip so that you can see what all of the fuss is about.
