Fortune ‘is washed away’


THE winner of a $26 million (£18.5 million) California Lottery prize may have washed a fortune down the drain.

The winning SuperLotto Plus ticket was sold at an Arco AM/PM convenienc­e store in the Los Angeles suburb of Norwalk.

However, store employee Esperanza Hernandez said a woman told workers she had put the ticket in her trousers and it was destroyed in the laundry.
