The winner of a £1 million prize won with a ticket bought in Sunderland has claimed their cash.

Camelot UK Lotteries Limited, operator of The National Lottery, has announced that the Lotto Millionaire Raffle prize from the Lotto draw on September 6, 2017 – which had previously remained outstanding in the City of Sunderland – has now been claimed.

The winning code was NAVY 1295 4706.

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.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, 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.”
