A young couple who thought they won a £182m jackpot in the EuroMillions were left heartbroken after they found out the payment for their ticket did not go through.

Rachel Kennedy and her boyfriend Liam McCrogan, from Hertfordshire, were told via text that they had won the £182 million jackpot in February 2021.

But Ms Kennedy, who was 19 at the time, did not have enough funds in her account to pay for the £2.50 ticket.
