The hunt is on for the owner of a Euromillions ticket worth £12million which expires tonight.

The ticket, which has winning code JRG437445, was bought in Ladywood, Birmingham on May 31 this year.

Officials in Birmingham have stepped up efforts to track down the ticket owner, with Lord Mayor Mike Leddy even starting a countdown clock in the town centre earlier this week.

A claim for the cash must be made by 11pm, otherwise it will be donated to charity, becoming the second highest uncollected lottery jackpot.

The largest was £64million from a ticket bought in December last year.

Euromillions winners Gillian and Adrian Bayford from Haverhill, Suffolk, recently announced they had split up following their £148,656,000 win in August 2012.

One UK ticket holder scooped a £26.8 million Euromillions jackpot last night.

The winning numbers were 19, 23, 27, 42 and 44 and the lucky stars were 3 and 5.

The UK ticket holder was the only person who matched all five winning numbers and the two lucky stars. They won £26,863,588.20.

Another UK ticket holder won £1 million by matching the raffle number TNS 586481.

Friday's Euromillions jackpot is an estimated £12 million.
