A Forfar man is celebrating becoming Scotland’s newest millionaire after scooping the £10,317,199 jackpot in Saturday’s Lotto draw.

Rumour have been sweeping the town since the weekend that the jackpot winner is from the town but Lottery operator Camelot said initially that, while a valid claim had been lodged for the £10,317,199 jackpot it could not say whether that ticket was an individual or a syndicate. It also said that at there were no big prize winners in the Angus area who had agreed to publicity.

Camelot confirmed today, though, that the 59-year-old is from Forfar and is expected to go public this afternoon.
