A LUCKY Edinburgh ticket holder has scooped a £1million prize - almost a month after their numbers came up.

EuroMillions organisers Camelot had previously put out an appeal for one of the winners of the Lotto Millionaire Raffle 26 August 2017 – which had previously remained outstanding in the City of Edinburgh to come forward.

Andy Carter, of the The National Lottery, 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-changing amount of money.
