Lottery winner Adrian Bayford may have to pay £200,000 to a former gardener who almost lost a leg in a golf cart crash.

Mr Bayford, 44, and his wife Gillian, 43, won £148million in 2012.

According to The Sun, he is now being sued over the crash, which happened in June, 2013, on his £6million estate in Haverhill. Christopher Tovey, 41, claims he was a passenger in the buggy when Bayford lost control of it at 30mph, hitting two trees and flipping it over.

A High Court writ says Tovey’s left leg, ankle and foot were crushed.

He needed two operations to save his leg. The dad of three, also of Haverhill, wants a payout of over £200,000. The writ claims Bayford’s lawyers accepted blame in November, 2013.
