A lucky lottery winner is several hundred pounds wealthier this week after belatedly claiming a massive prize.
Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, operator of The National Lottery, has announced that the £76,069 prize from the Lotto draw on 3 June 2015 – which had previously remained outstanding in North Lanarkshire – has now been claimed.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win. It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money.
“We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”
