A publicity campaign by Lottery company Camelot has revealed a surprising fact - the Harborough area has a secret millionaire or even multi-millionaire Lottery winner.

Camelot has just issued posters to each shop in the country that sold a big winning ticket over the years.

And one of the posters went to Sainsbury’s in St Mary’s Place, Market Harborough.

The winning Market Harborough ticket, a Camelot spokesperson con firmed this week, would have been worth at least £1 million.

But the spokesperson was unable to tell the Mail who had won the big prize, or when.

A modest blue and silver Lottery sign on the front door of the store this week announcing “Millionaire made in this store” was the intriguing evidence for the local winner.

And a sales assistant selling Lottery tickets in the store this week was happy to confirm: “Yes, it’s true - we had a big winner here. How many tickets do you want?”
