In order to prove that Lady Luck shines upon those in this industry, a group of IT workers are now £45 million better off.

After a media dash to discover who won the Euromillions draw at the weekend, it has been revealed that one half of the £90 million jackpot winners are a syndicate of IT workers who are employed by Hewlett Packard.

A report by BBC News claimed that one half of the lucky winners are the syndicate from Liverpool. The other is a married couple from Newport in South Wales.
