Hundreds of people “have winning £33m lottery ticket”

Claims being considered on a “case-by-case” basis

Hundreds of people have attempted to claim a £33m lottery jackpot, according to Camelot.

The company, which runs Lotto and other competitions, confirmed the winning ticket was bought in Worcester ahead of the 9 January draw.

The full prize was £66m, though half was claimed within days by a couple from Hawick.

A Camelot spokesman said: “Given the interest in the missing £33m ticket-holder, we have received hundreds of claims of this nature.

“All of these are currently being considered on a case-by-case basis, and we will follow up with all claimants directly to advise them whether their claim will be investigated further.”
