The hunt is on to find five lucky UK lottery winners who are yet to claim prize money worth £1 million each.

Winners in Bolton, Northumberland, Shropshire, North Lanarkshire and Camden are running out of time to scoop up their millions as the deadline to come forward looms.

The winners in Bolton and Northumberland have only until May to claim whereas the Shropshire winner needs to come forward by July at the latest.

Meanwhile, the lucky winners in North Lanarkshire near Glasgow and in Camden have until August 14 to claim.

There are also several other outstanding lottery tickets left to claim for prizes worth up to £500,000 including a number of Set for Life winners.

One Set for Life winner only has until tomorrow, March 16, to claim their life-changing pot of cash.

If the winners don’t come forward, the money and interest will go to support National Lottery Projects instead. In which case, they fund projects like food banks, workshops and other initiatives designed to help struggling communities.

To claim, players need to contact National Lottery directly.

The National Lottery said: “We hope a lucky player comes forward in time, but if a valid claim is not received within 180 days of the draw date, the prize and any interest earned on it will go to benefit National Lottery Projects across the UK.”

Here is the full list of winning tickets that are yet to be claimed:
