The winner of a lottery jackpot prize of more than £3 million is being sought before the chance to claim the life-changing sum expires.

The potential millionaire who matched all six numbers in the Lotto draw on Saturday February 9 bought the winning ticket in the Sevenoaks district of Kent.

The winner - whose Lotto numbers on that date were 8, 10, 27, 34, 40, 41 with a bonus ball of 48 - has until August 8 to claim their prize totalling £3,094,304.

If no-one comes forward to claim the cash before then, the money, plus all the interest generated, will go to the National Lottery good causes.

A National Lottery spokesman said: "We're desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings. This amazing jackpot prize could really make a huge difference to somebody's life.

"We're urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding."

To jog memories, Get Up (Rattle) by Bingo Players featuring Far East Movement was No 1 in the UK singles chart at the time, while Biffy Clyro were at the top of the album charts with Opposites.

Football fans may remember that local side Gillingham were in action on the day of the Lotto draw in npower League Two. The Gills travelled to Bradford City and managed a 1-0 win.

Away from sport, locals may have visited the Stag Community Arts Centre in Sevenoaks on February 7 to watch comedian Mark Watson.

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline can call the National Lottery line on 0845 910 0000.
