BOLTON’S multi-millionaire lottery winner, Brian Caswell, has made a final plea for people in the borough to search for a missing million pound lottery ticket that will expire next week.

The winning EuroMillions ticket was bought in Bolton on July 26 and the elusive millionaire only has until next Wednesday to claim the prize.

Mr Caswell, aged 78, above, scooped a £25 million jackpot on the EuroMillions in 2009 and has issued a last call to people to check their pockets.

He said: “A million pounds is a life-changing amount of money and once it’s gone, it’s gone. It will be no good finding it in a month.

“Don’t delay, check your pockets today as the clock is ticking towards the claim deadline date.”

The ticket is from the millionaire raffle section of the EuroMillions lottery.

For every line played on the EuroMillions, players receive a unique raffle number and the Bolton winner’s raffle code is CBS004223.

Mr Caswell, who still lives in Bolton, and his family have used the big lottery win to set up and run the Caswell Charitable Trust which aims to find ways to support local charities.
