Would you wait to claim a 14.2m jackpot
A 14.2m lottery winner from Wiltshire has finally come forward more than a fortnight after scooping the prize.

Lottery operator Camelot said the lucky ticket holder had owned up on Friday after the company appealed for him to claim the cash.

The ticket for the double rollover Lotto draw on Wednesday 14 April was bought in the county - the winning numbers were: 1, 3, 22, 32, 38 and 44.

Camelot has not released any further details about the winner.

Camelot chief executive Dianne Thompson said: "I am thrilled that the mystery ticket holder has finally come forward to claim the prize."

Winners have 180 days to come forward to claim their prize before the money goes into a fund to benefit good causes.

The Wiltshire winner has missed out on about 20,000 interest for the days the prize was unclaimed.
