A £225,081 prize from a National Lottery draw in February has finally been claimed by the winner in Northumberland.

Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, operator of The National Lottery, is pleased to announce that the £225,081 prize from the Lotto draw on Valentine’s Day, which had previously remained outstanding in Northumberland, has now been claimed.

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.

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.”
