Market hunt for £63.8m winner

Lottery organisers hit the streets yesterday as they stepped up the hunt for a mystery millionaire.

The unclaimed £63.8m EuroMillions prize has been narrowed down to a ticket bought in Hertfordshire. Its holder has still to come forward to accept the windfall, nearly a fortnight after the draw – the longest such a large win has gone unclaimed.

There were two jackpot winners on 8 June – one in Belgium, one in the UK, where the ticket was bought in the Stevenage and Hitchin area. Shoppers in Market Square, Hitchin, were met by two giant billboards reading "Are you the lucky £63.8 million winner?"
