National Lottery urges EuroMillions winner to claim £41m jackpot with just four days left


THE winner of a EuroMillions jackpot prize worth £41million is being urged to come forward by the national lottery. The ticket from the draw on December 3 was bought in Dorset and the winner has just four days left to claim if their ticket has been lost, stolen or destroyed Cash from the win could buy a fleet of 300 Ferrari Spider sports cars, nearly 7,000 Rolex Submariner watches or one home on some of London’s most expensive streets.

Andy Carter, of the national lottery, said: “The festive period is such a busy time and in all the excitement it’s possible that the winning ticket might have been somehow misplaced. “What a start to the new year it would be for the lucky ticket-holder if they were to check their tickets and claim their prize.” The winning numbers were 18, 31, 32, 38 and 48 with 4 and 12 as lucky stars. A ticket that is intact can be presented until the end of May. If no one comes forward the money will go towards lottery-funded projects Last month Steve Thomson, 42, a builder from West Sussex, won a £105million jackpot after claiming it in the space of three days. Steve turned Santa after his incredible windfall — by doing customers’ jobs for free. The dad of three, 42, was stressed out after scooping the EuroMillions jackpot last month and kept ­working to “stay normal”. Steve from Selsey, West Sussex, got in the Christmas spirit by not charging. One customer said: “He’s a top bloke.” He refused to charge several ­clients for jobs he has completed since the huge win. Steve finished installing a conservatory for one neighbour in Selsey, West Sussex, last week. But he refused payment for the job, instead letting the woman keep the money for Christmas. The neighbour, who did not want to be named, said: “He didn’t charge. It shows he’s a top bloke, a decent man.”
