Man who won £6.5m Jackpot in 1995 now broke after buying cars,helicopters & more (PHOTOS)

Lotto Lag Lee Ryan, who won £6.5million in a 1995 Lotto jackpot, is now broke and  lives in a tiny flat in south London where he takes in homeless lodgers .
Mr Ryan hit the headlines when he landed the small fortune only weeks after the National Lottery was established, then later that year was sentenced to 18 months in prison for handling stolen cars.

According to Mailonline, Before and after the prison stint, he proceeded to spend the money on Ferraris, a Bentley and a BMW, a £1million Leicestershire mansion, a helicopter and a plane.

A series of misfortunes also saw his housekeeper jailed for stealing £40,000, while his Porsche and caravan were set on fire in suspicious circumstances. He later divorced his wife Karen Taylor, with whom he had won the fortune, and moved in with a 24-year-old student from Kyrgzstan.
The couple then divorced and he returned to London, where he spent two years being homeless. He now lives in tiny south London apartment...He said 
The money was cursed because I took the p*** out of God when I asked him to make me a multi-millionaire. My cellmate warned me to be careful what I wished for.'
 He now works as a cameraman, which brings in less than £10,000 a year, but claims to be happier than ever.
'If I had not won the lottery I would probably now be doing life.'
