The mystery Eastbourne person who’d scooped £124,237 on the National Lottery but failed to claim their cash has come forward at last.
The draw took place on January 24, but no-one claimed the money for a month.
A National Lottery spokesperson said, “We’re delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win.
“It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-enhancing amount of money.
“We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”
The lucky winner has opted to remain anonymous.
