Two people won £50,000, four won £25,000 and 300 people won £1,000 with the grand total of winnings in Suffolk reaching £875,000.

Premium Bonds are an investment product issued by National Savings and Investment (NS&I).

Andrew Westhead, NS&I retail director, said: "The quickest way to check if you have won a prize is to use our Premium Bonds prize checker app, check online, or even ask Alexa from the second working day of each month onwards."
