Lottery players in Worcester are being advised to turn out their pockets and check behind their sofas after it was revealed the as-yet-unclaimed £33 million is owed to a lucky punter in the city.

Nobody has yet come forward to claim the huge prize, half of a record £66 million jackpot drawn on 9 January.

Scottish couple David and Carol Martin jumped to declare their half of the winnings at a glitzy press conference, catapulting the pair into the Lotto Hall of Fame.

People were so keen to play on the day that the Lotto website crashed and dozens of outlets reported long queues.

As the allusive £33 million remains unclaimed, Camelot, the firm behind Lotto, has revealed the rough location the outstanding ticket was purchased.

Camelot advised players to "check, double-check and triple-check their tickets".

As well as unveiling details of some initial spending plans, and their hopes for an early retirement, the Martins hinted they might look to help some of those affected by the floods, which hit the UK recently.

Mr Martin said: "We don't have all the answers yet but we'd like to help our closest friends and family, and there are charities which are important to us too.

"Parts of our community have also been hit by flooding and we know lots of people who have struggled in recent times, so there's a lot for us to work out, but it's a nice problem to have."
