A claim has been made for the £61m jackpot in Friday's EuroMillions draw, National Lottery's operator Camelot has said.

The lottery was won by a UK ticket-holder, and subject to validation, the prize totalling £61,102,442.90 could be paid out when banks open on Monday.

"What an amazing win for the UK - the fourth EuroMillions jackpot to be won here this year," a National Lottery spokesman said.

"We're delighted the ticket-holder has come forward to claim their prize and their ranking of 10th place in the National Lottery rich list", he added.

The latest win comes after an unnamed UK ticket holder won £51m in April's EuroMillions draw.

However the total is still some way off the biggest ever EuroMillions lottery win, which was claimed by Colin and Chris Weir from North Ayrshire, who scooped £161,653,000 in July 2011.
