A syndicate of 17 tax drivers have just been involved in a near miss lottery win.
The group had been looking forward to a bit of luck as cabbie takings have been hit pretty by the economy – with people preferring to look for cheaper methods of travel.
They actually match 5 main numbers and 1 lucky star on EuroMillions. Their final number was a 10 when the ball drawn was 9, leaving them with a more modest win of just under £81,000 instead of £27 Million.
But the cabbies are celebrating all the same as each will pocket £4,760 after sharing the pot. And with Christmas just around the corner now, they’re counting themselves lucky.
