An outstanding EuroMillions prize from a ticket bought in Windsor and Maidenhead has now been claimed.
Earlier this week, National Lottery operator Camelot put out an appeal for the lucky winner of a prize worth £277,165.40 from the March 4 draw to come forward.
It was announced today (Thursday) that the winner, who has not been named, has now claimed their prize.
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.”
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
