THE owner of an unclaimed winning Lottery ticket which had been bought in the Sheffield area has been found.
Camelot, the operator of the National Lottery, said the £146,658 prize from the draw on Wednesday January 26 had now been claimed.
A National Lottery spokesman said: “We’re delighted the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and we hope 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.”
