Anyone who comes forward will be asked what sort of container the lottery tickets were in so that Richard can make sure he’s found the right person. Richard has posted in a number of community groups on Facebook to try and find the winner.

Richard took to Facebook and wrote: "Anyone know a Barry Levett? the reason I ask is that my wife found a number of lottery tickets (which also included a winning cheque made out to Barry hence why we know a name) in a Tesco’s trolley and we wish to return to him.

"A description of what the tickets are kept in would be required before anyone tries to claim on his behalf. Thank you."

If you know think you know Barry you can contact Richard through Cambridge Live and help get the lottery tickets to the winner.

Some lottery winners choose not to get too carried away about their good fortune.

Elaine Thompson, 64, won £2.7m in December 1995 and says she decided to carry on working so that she could be a role model for her two children, who were aged 5 and 10 at the time, and she's still hard at it.

She told Chronicle Live : "It's important that children see you working hard, and that we don't get anything out of life unless you work hard for it.”

She says the 2am starts can sometimes be a little tough: ”I was leaving the house at 1.15am every morning, I get up at midnight."

"A couple of times during lockdown it was really really hard," Elaine said.

"I was driving to work thinking 'What am I doing?'

"But I kept working all the way through.

"I could not have done furlough. I'm coming up to 65 next week but I'm not ready to retire yet.”
