Winning ticket is worth more than £160k
A lucky Brent resident has left it late but come forward and claimed a grand cash prize from the EuroMillions draw.
Last week, the Times put an appeal out for the winner, who defied superstition to claim a total of £167,444.20, on the draw made on Friday July 13.
A National Lottery spokesperson 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-enhancing amount of money.”
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.
The spokesman added: “We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”
