A MYSTERY man from Hampshire has won more than £120,000 from the National Lottery.

Known only as Mr P, he bagged a cool £126,850.30 after matching the five main numbers in the Euromillions draw on December 17, and plans to use the winnings for a house deposit.

Mr P, who played a lucky dip via the National Lottery app, has become one of over eight million players that win each week on the National Lottery’s range of games joining Mrs J, also from the area, who won £300,000 on an instant win game a few weeks ago.
