A Hampshire man is counting his blessings this evening after winning £1.3m on the national lottery. Reports say the mystery man, who has been named only as Mr N as he wants to remain anonymous, struck gold after playing the game online.

Mr N matched all six numbers in the draw on Saturday January 26, pocketing the life-changing top prize of £1,314,707. He split the £3.9m jackpot with two other lucky winners from across the UK, one of whom was from Somerset, after matching the numbers 2, 6, 21, 29, 34 and 47.
