A Couple from Haverhill in Suffolk have won the UK’s second biggest ever lottery prize.

The couple were the only winners in Friday's EuroMillions draw, scooping an incredible £148,656,000.

Lottery operator Camelot has confirmed the pair have come forward to claim their prize and they will be holding a news conference tomorrow.

This isn't the first big win for our region - you may remember back in October last year when Dave and Angela Dawes from Wisbech scooped more than £101m.

Earlier this year £64m was won in the Hitchin and Stevenage area, yet so far the multi-million pound prize has not been claimed.

The sum is just behind the £161 million landed by Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in North Ayrshire, last July.

A difference in the exchange rate means this week's jackpot was slightly lower.

Theirs is the seventh lucky ticket to have hit the jackpot in the UK this year.

To date, the National Lottery has created some 2,900 millionaires
