The ticket-holder bought their EuroMillions ticket in the Milton Keynes area in time for the February 15 draw.

But the deadline to claim their prize was at midnight on Monday (August 14),leaving them with the grand sum of... Nothing.

The money, plus the interest it earned, has now gone to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
