Luck refuses to be a lady as Florida man hunts for the fortune he threw away

Dale Miller rummages through a rubbish dump in Volusia County, Florida, in search of a winning lottery ticket he says he threw out with the garbage. The ticket would be worth dollars 10m ( pounds 6.6m) but so far Mr Miller has not been able to lay hands on it.
