Eurolottery record

Sixteen people have shared the record £95m ($190m)rollover jackpot in the EuroMillions lottery. Because no-one managed to match all the five main numbers plus the two lucky star numbers, the £95m will be shared among the next level of winners.

Camelot said some seven to 10 million tickets were bought in Britain.

The winning numbers were 17, 28, 30, 38 and 44, while the Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 04.

A spokeswoman for Camelot said it had been a "busy day both in retailers and online".

The 16 winners, who matched all five main numbers and one lucky star, will receive £6,462,181.30 each.($13million - tax free)

Six of the winning tickets came from the UK, with five coming from France, two from Switzerland, and one each from Austria, Belgium and Portugal.
