A £3.5m LOTTERY jackpot, won by a ticket sold on the Fylde coast, has finally been claimed.

Camelot UK, which operates the National Lottery, today announced the £3,507,769 jackpot prize from the draw on February 29 – which had previously remained outstanding – has been claimed.

A National Lottery spokesman 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 substantial and life-changing amount of money.

“We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”

Unless the winner opts to take full publicity and signs an agreement to that effect, the Lottery operator will release no further information about the win.
