Lottery operator Camelot has said the winner of a £33m Lotto jackpot has finally come forward to claim the prize.

Camelot said it had received a valid claim from a holder of the multimillion winning ticket bought in Worcester.

They have chosen to remain anonymous.

Camelot said it had been investigating hundreds of claims of lost, damaged or stolen tickets in Worcester.

A spokesman for the National Lottery said they were “delighted” that the rightful winner had now been found. 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-changing amount of money. We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.
