£5.4m lottery win goes unclaimed
Lottery ticket being printed
The winning ticket was bought in North Lanarkshire
The search is on for the holder of Scotland's biggest unclaimed National Lottery win of £5.4m.

The ticket was bought for the draw on Saturday 10 September in North Lanarkshire but the prize has not been claimed in the intervening four weeks.

The winner has until 9 March next year to come forward or the prize, plus the interest it has raised, will go to the National Lottery good causes fund

The winning numbers that night were 1, 8, 24, 27, 34 and 46.

Two other large wins in Scotland remain unclaimed, one for £250,000 and another for £63,330.

The former was a Thunderball ticket bought in the north east for the draw on 15 June and the second was a Lotto five plus bonus ticket sold in Dundee for the 27 July draw.

Camelot spokesman Fabian Devlin said: "We would like to add a few more winners by uniting these mystery ticket-holders with their money.

Life-changing prize

"This massive £5.4m prize could make a huge difference to somebody's life and we are very hopeful that the ticket-holder will come forward in time."

To jog people's memories, on 10 September, the Pussycat Dolls' new single Don't Cha was top of the UK charts and the Russell Crowe/Renée Zellwegger film Cinderella Man had just been released.

Locally, the North Lanarkshire Famers' Market was held.
