Someone has finally claimed a winning £1m lottery ticket that was bought in the borough.

The winner had been sitting on their £1,178,108 prize since the draw on February 10.

Organisers Camelot cannot reveal the person's identity, or even where the ticket was bought, unless the victor gives permission, which they have not yet done.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re delighted that the winner of this 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.”
