Two different National Lottery prizes of £1 million each have been scooped within the same Manchester borough.
Camelot confirmed it has received claims on the two Lotto prizes from the draw on August 8, with both winning tickets having been bought in the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham.
Both lucky ticket-holders managed to match five main numbers plus the bonus ball in last month's draw.
Camelot's Andy Carter, Senior Winners' Advisor at The National Lottery, said: "This is incredible news – one draw, one town and an incredible TWO £1M Lotto prizes that have now been claimed.
"It's fantastic to be able to bring a little bit of cheer to the area with this news.

"We will now focus on supporting the ticket-holder or ticket-holders through the process.
"We're continuing to encourage all National Lottery players to check their tickets, either online via the National Lottery website or, as the current situation allows, in their local store."
As with all major National Lottery prizes, the claims will now go through the process of validation, which includes checks to ensure the Games Rules Terms and Conditions are adhered to and the integrity of The National Lottery is protected.
After being validated, the prizes will then be paid at an appointment with one of Camelot's Winners' Advisers.
Once the tickets have been validated and paid, the ticket-holders will then decide whether or not to go public and share their incredible news.
With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket.
Anyone who has any queries or who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0333 234 5050 or email [email protected]
Earlier this month the winner of a £58 million EuroMillions jackpot came forward to claim their whopping prize at the very last minute.
The life-changing lottery ticket was bought in South Ayrshire in Scotland for the EuroMillions draw back on March 17.
Sunday, September 13 was the deadline to claim the money before the enormous sum went to charity.
The massive prize of £57,869,670 would have been the largest unclaimed prize in National Lottery history.
