A man from Durham wins £1 million in the EuroMillions

He's called Mr R and he lives somewhere in County Durham.

That is the only things we know about the man who has pocketed £1 million in the EuroMillions.

He didn't even have to dodge the rain to buy a ticket, instead the winning ticket was bought online.

The lucky winner banked the huge cheque in the record breaking EuroMillions draw on the 27th July 2012.

“Well done to Mr R, he has banked this amazing prize with just a few simple clicks"
