A claim has been made for the £87 million jackpot in Friday's EuroMillions draw, National Lottery's operator Camelot has said.

The lottery was won by a British ticket holder, and subject to validation, the winner will pick up the prize totalling £87,570,000.

It is not yet known if the winner has decided whether to go public with their winnings.

"It's great that the ticket holder has come forward to claim their amazing prize", a National Lottery spokesperson said.

"We look forward to supporting the seventh biggest lottery winner in the UK as they celebrate their life-changing win," he added.

This is the third EuroMillions jackpot win in the UK this year.

There were two winners in February – one banking £19.9 million and the other £14.5 million.
