One lucky person is sitting on a lottery ticket worth £35.4m after winning the EuroMillions draw.
Camelot, which operates the British arm of the European lottery, said it would be the biggest single payout in the UK's lottery history. But the holder of the ticket, which was bought somewhere in the UK, has not come forward since Friday night's draw. Camelot said the winner, who has 180 days to collect their prize, may not even be aware of their good fortune.
The lottery operators know the winning ticket was bought in the UK but will not give out information on where it was purchased until 25 days have passed. Then, if the ticket holder has not collected their winnings, Camelot will release further information. A spokesman said: "It is the largest jackpot won by a British person.
"It's not unusual for people to not check their tickets until the next day, so the person may not be aware yet. "It's very exciting, someone out there is sitting on a fortune."
The numbers drawn on Friday 10 August are: 23, 40, 42, 43, 49 . Lucky Star numbers are: 2 and 6 .
