A lucky Southwark resident has become a millionaire after scooping a £1 million prize from an outstanding lottery ticket.
An appeal had been launched in September to find the mystery owner of the winning EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker prize ticket on August 21.
The riches went unclaimed for several months – until now.
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery 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 life-changing amount of money.
“We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”
Camelot UK, which operates the National Lottery, said it could not release further details about the winner, including where in Southwark the ticket was bought, unless the winner agrees to full publicity.
