A Euromillions ticket worth more than £180,000, bought in Cheshire West and Chester, has been claimed.

The Chronicle reported at the end of April that the ticket, bought for the April 5 draw, had gone unclaimed but Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, operator of The National Lottery, has announced that the owner of the ticket, with a £187,582.60 prize, has now come forward.

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 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.

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