This is one of those stories you have nightmares about.

A couple missed out on a 210 million EuroMillions jackpot after their regular numbers came up.

The only problem is their ticket payment to the UK National Lottery didn’t go through.

The pair who are both students, had played the winning numbers for five weeks in a row before all seven digits appeared in Friday’s draw.

The girls’ account with the UK National Lottery was set up to automatically buy a EuroMillions ticket with her usual numbers.

But unfortunately because her account didn’t have the right funds, the ticket payment did not go through.
