Two friends from Salford thought their dreams had come true when a bet on their favourite team won them more £23,000.

However the bookmaker William Hill is refusing to pay out.

The men placed a double bet on Salford Red Devils finishing in Super League's top five and their star player Jackson Hastings being named the sport's Man of Steel - that's the player of the season.

But William Hill says the double bet was never on offer and is blaming human error.
