A Euromillions lottery player from Essex has claimed over £134,000 in winnings from a draw earlier this year.

Camelot, who run The National Lottery, confirmed that it has received a claim for the EuroMillions prize from the draw on February 28.

The ticket, purchased in the Chelmsford area matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the draw, winning the holder £134,316.20.

The prize claim will now be validated by Camelot before the winner is paid.

It’s not clear at this stage who the winner is or whether the money was won by an individual or a syndicate.
