A lucky Lotto player who bought a winning ticket in Kent has finally claimed almost £1.5million.
The ticket was sold in Thanet and scooped the jackpot on August 2.
An appeal was issued last month amid fears the prize would go unclaimed.
The National Lottery said the winner's identity is being kept a secret for now while news of the £1.471m win sinks in.
A National Lottery spokesman said: "We're delighted that the winner of this amazing prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win.
"It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money.
"We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play."
