After discovering the double win the delighted shop manager Tahir Mughal said: "We have a lot of loyal customers who play Daily Millions every day, including truck drivers, so we are delighted if their numbers have come up."

A spokesperson for the National Lottery said it's very unusual for a store two sell two tickets with the same numbers and for them to win the same prize.
