A jackpot lottery winner from North Lanarkshire has missed out on claiming £5.4m - which will now be given away to good causes.
The winning ticket was bought in North Lanarkshire
The winning ticket was bought for the draw on Saturday 10 September and has been unclaimed for six months.
According to lottery operator Camelot, it is the second largest unclaimed prize in the lottery's 11-year history.
The biggest unclaimed prize in the UK to date was a £9m winning ticket bought in Doncaster.
Camelot's regional manager Alex McLelland said: "Someone's loss is the good causes' gain."
He said the ticket must have been lost so the person who bought it would probably not know that they had won.
Mr McLelland said that Camelot knew which shop the winning ticket was bought in, but would not reveal its exact location.
"If we announced that we might upset a lot of people in that town or village, and we would not want to do that," he said.
