The east London postcode RM is the luckiest location for major National Lottery wins, Camelot has revealed.

The postcode, which includes Romford, Dagenham and Hornchurch, has had more winners of £50,000 or higher per head than anywhere else in the country.

RM is followed by TS (Teesside) in the North East and WA (Warrington) in the North West for the most winners since the National Lottery began.

A total of 4,250 millionaires have been created since the draw began in 1994.

In the last two years, TR (Truro) in Cornwall has had more big winners than anywhere else.

The huge B (Birmingham) postcode remains the location of the most winners of £50,000 or more since the National Lottery began, at 1,180.
