Accidental New Zealand millionaires scoot off for a fling with £4,000,000!!!

A couple have gone on the run with millions of pounds mistakenly paid into their account by their bank.

An international search was launched after Leo Gao and his Australian girlfriend Cara Young suddenly disappeared from New Zealand's tourist town of Rotorua.

The pair had asked for a £4,000 overdraft for their petrol station business, but a blunder by staff at the Westpac bank paid 1,000 times more - £4m.

Police and neighbours believe the couple have now followed the bank's slogan to 'Make the Most of Life'. One day they were busy at work, the next they were gone. More...
