Bristol woman wins £1m Premium Bond draw

A woman from Bristol has won £1m in October's Premium Bond draw.

The winning bond is number 144QQ570454, which was bought in October 2008.

The unknown winner, who holds £20,000 in bonds, becomes the 249th Premium Bond millionaire, a National Savings and Investments spokesman said.

Premium Bonds can be purchased in £1 units and pay no interest but each bond has an equal chance of winning the monthly £1m jackpot.

The numbers are chosen at random by a machine called Ernie.
