Have your say

The lucky Leeds winner of a £208,000 EuroMillions prize has claimed their prize.

Camelot UK Lotteries Ltd, operator of The National Lottery, announced that the prize from the December 20 draw had been claimed after an appeal began when news emerged the ticket was bought in the district.

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 – what a great way to start 2014.

“It would have been awful if the ticket holder had missed out on this substantial and life-enhancing amount of money.”
