Someone out there is sitting on a £1million lottery ticket, could it be you?

We all dream of one day winning the lottery – even if we don't buy tickets very often – and plan what we would spend our millions on.

Whether it's a new house, a year-long trip around the world or maybe the fanciest car out there, we all know what we'd do first.

However, we never think that one day we'd win the lottery and not come forward to claim our winnings.

At the moment, the National Lottery are searching for the winner of £1million, who is yet to come forward with their ticket to claim their money.

But with the days quickly running out, this person could just miss out on the chance of becoming a millionaire.

They have until July 9 to claim the £1million.

After then, these winnings and the interest will go to National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
