Champagne being pouredA UK lottery winner who claimed a £22.1 million EuroMillions jackpot has decided to remain anonymous, Camelot said.

The prize from the March 2 draw has been paid out but no further details, including the location where the winning ticket was purchased, will be revealed.
Camelot, operator of the National Lottery, said the ticket-holder won £22,198,232.50 and enters the National Lottery Rich List in 16th place.
