London's most reluctant millionaire misses out on a fortune

Someone in London should be a million pounds richer. But they've missed the deadline to claim the life-changing fortune.

The reluctant millionaire bought a ticket in Tower Hamlets, and was one of 10 lucky players from the EuroMillions Mega Friday draw on 28 November, 2014. They were guaranteed a £1m prize plus the trip of a life time to Australia, Peru or Brazil.

But no one came forward with a winning ticket before Wednesday's deadline. It means the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

We tried very hard to find the ticket-holder and it’s a real shame that they have missed out.

The winning code on the ticket was TFB893929.

The moment was captured by Alison Braun just a day after the seven cygnets were born in Platford Green in Hornchurch, east London.

I try go and photograph them every year but I've never managed to catch them hitching a ride on their mum's back before.

I just stood on the bank and she sat there with her babies - it's fantastic. And they had only been born the day before.
