THE PEOPLE OF the town of Herfortshire in East England are in a frenzy trying to find a £2 EuroMillions lotto ticket worth almost £64 million/€79 million.

The jackpot was won by two people, one in Belgium and the other in Hertfordshire, but the UK winner has yet to claim their prize.

If the jackpot is not claimed by 11pm tomorrow it can never be redeemed as their 180-day deadline is up

The winning numbers drawn on Friday 8 June were 5, 11, 22, 34, 40 and the Lucky Star numbers were 9 and 11.

The UK National Lottery team are on standby waiting for the millionaire to call them on 0044 845 910 0000 to register their claim.

If the prize is not claimed, it would make it the biggest unclaimed prize in British lottery history.
