EuroMillions organisers searching for the UK winner of a £76m jackpot have revealed the location where the ticket was bought.

It was purchased in the parliamentary constituency of Boston and Skegness in Lincolnshire – the same area that a retired couple previously scooped a £53m jackpot.

Richard and Angela Maxwell, from Boston in Lincolnshire, won the life-changing sum in April 2015.

EuroMillions players are being urged to check, double-check and triple-check their tickets for the latest unclaimed prize following the 2 November draw.

The owner of the winning ticket matched all five main numbers in the draw, which were 5, 15, 17, 37 and 44.

They also matched two lucky star numbers – 7 and 11.

The unclaimed jackpot is worth £76,369,806.80.

Andy Carter, senior winners adviser at the National Lottery, is leading the search to find the lucky ticket-holder.

He will be based at Five Lamps on Market Place, Boston, from 10am on Thursday.

The unclaimed prize is the fourth EuroMillions jackpot won in the UK this year and the 12th biggest National Lottery prize of all-time.

The winner is set to be catapulted into the same riches league as the likes of Ed Sheeran and Gareth Bale.

According to The Sunday Times Rich List, the pop star is worth a cool £80m, while the Real Madrid winger is worth £74m.
