The winner of a £5 million National Lottery jackpot has come forward to claim their prize two weeks after the winning numbers were announced.
An appeal by Lotto operator, Camelot, was launched after the winning ticket, which was purchased in the Sheffield area, had not been presented after the Saturday August 29 draw.
A National Lottery spokeswoman said: "It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money.
The missing winner had until February 25 next year to make their claim or miss out on £4,908,817.
