National Lottery bosses are still searching for the second winner of a £33 million jackpot.

Their senior winners' adviser, Andy Carter, is visiting Worcester after the lottery operator confirmed that a ticket bought in the area matched all six balls in its record £66 million jackpot draw on January 9.

Under the terms of its licence, Camelot has discretion to pay prizes in respect of stolen, lost or destroyed tickets if a player has submitted a claim in writing within 30 days of the relevant draw.

David and Carol Martin, both 54, from Hawick in the Scottish Borders, celebrated winning the other half of the jackpot amid a flurry of media attention last week.
