The National Lottery has announced that the jackpot prize of £1,178,108 jackpot prize from the Lotto draw on 10 February 2010 has now been found.

The Lottery launched a hunt for the holder of the ticket, which was bought in Hammersmith and Fulham, when it remained unclaimed.

But now, a spokesperson for Camelot Group, which operates the National Lottery says: "We’re delighted that the winner of this 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."

The identity of our newest millionaire, however remains secret. The Lottery says unless the winner opts to take full publicity and signs an agreement to that effect, no further information can be released about their win.
