A single UK ticket holder has won a record £161m by scooping the EuroMillions jackpot.

The winner matched five main numbers and both the Lucky Stars to take the huge jackpot, which had been capped after a series of rollovers made it the largest ever in the UK. No details about the winner were revealed.

Until last night's draw, the biggest UK lottery winner was an anonymous player who claimed £113m in the EuroMillions in October. A Camelot spokeswoman said: "We've got the champagne on ice and look forward to welcoming the ticket-holder."
