Second Record £33m Lotto Winner From Worcester

21 January 2016, 21:15

People in Worcester are being asked to check and double check their lottery ticket because someone there's won £33 million.

Camelot revealed the city where the ticket was bought as it urged players to "check, double-check and triple-check their tickets''.

The six winning numbers - 26, 27, 46, 47, 52 and 58 - were drawn on Saturday January 9.

The other half was won by a couple in Scotland.

A Camelot spokeswoman said a "very small'' number of people within the company know where the ticket was bought.

The broader area of Worcester, identified to include at least 100,000 people to ensure the ticket-holder can maintain anonymity, was released to the media in an effort to jog the memory of the winner to check his or her numbers.

Nothing more about the lucky ticket, including whether it was bought by an individual or a syndicate, is known, the spokeswoman added.

She said the purpose of the Worcester announcement is to "raise awareness in that area'' that will hopefully lead to the ticket-holder realising they have won and coming forward to make a claim.
