Suffolk: Search is on for �250k lottery winner

LOTTERY players are being urged to check their tickets after it emerged there has been another big win in Suffolk.

Just months after Adrian Bayford and his wife Gillian from Haverhill scooped an incredible �148million on the EuroMillions, Lottery bosses have revealed that a �248,592 prize remains unclaimed.

The ticket, which matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the EuroMillions draw on Friday September 21, was also bought in the Forest Heath and St Edmundsbury area.

The winning numbers on that date were 4, 19, 34, 41, 43 and the Lucky Star numbers were 7 and 11.

A lottery spokeswoman said the ticket-holder has until Wednesday March 20 2013 to make their claim before the prize money - plus any interest it may have generated - is turned over to the Good Causes.

She added: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life. We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.

“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa – someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune!”
