�175,000 Lotto prize claimed

A LUCKY winner has scooped more than �175,000 on the National Lottery.

As the Welwyn Hatfield Times previously reported, lottery operator Camelot was hunting for a big winner who had bought their ticket in either WGC or Stevenage.

The ticket for the November 13 draw had matched five numbers and the bonus ball with a prize of �175,261.

But there are no other clues as to his or her identity.

A National Lottery spokesman said: “Unless the winner of a major National Lottery prize opts to take full publicity and signs an agreement to that effect, no further information can be released about their win.”

He added: “We’re delighted 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-enhancing amount of money. “We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”
