Winner of near-�250,000 National Lottery EuroMillions prize comes forward in Suffolk
The search for the winner of a �248,592 National Lottery prize has come to an end.
The owner of the winning ticket, which was bought in St Edmundsbury or Forest Heath for the EuroMillions draw on September 21, has now come forward.
The six figure sum is the third substantial lottery prize to be claimed in west Suffolk in as many months.
Adrian Bayford, 41 and his wife Gillian, 40, of Haverhill won �148m in August.
Two weeks later a mystery winner, also believed to be from Haverhill, claimed a prize of about �50,000 on the EuroMillions.
