Britain's biggest-ever national lottery win has been shared by two players, after huge numbers of tickets were sold for the £66 million tax-free jackpot.

The previous biggest British national lottery jackpot was £22.6 million more than 20 years ago.

The UK national lottery draw came the same day as Americans flocked to get tickets for a record jackpot of more than $900 million in the United States' Powerball draw.
