It may be ‘blue Monday’ - officially the most depressing day of the year - but for some lucky Havering resident things are just rosy, after taking home a Lottery win.

The unnamed ticket-holder finally claimed the £110,381 prize after getting five numbers and the bonus ball in the Wednesday December 28 Lotto draw.

It followed an appeal by organisers Camelot in Friday’s Recorder.

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’s certainly a great way to start 2012.

“It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-enhancing amount of money. We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play.”
