A Lotto jackpot prize worth £1.8m has yet to be claimed from a ticket bought in the Newry and Mourne area.

The owner of the ticket matched all six numbers in the Lotto draw on Saturday 29 November.

The winning Lotto numbers on that date were 6, 11, 18, 19, 38, 42 and the bonus ball was 17.

The ticket-holder has until 28 May, 2015, to claim their prize.

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: "We're eager to find the mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings - this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody's life.

"We're urging everyone who bought a Lotto ticket in this area to check their old tickets again, or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding."
