Double success

(Photograph) - Double success: identical twins Laura and Lynne Thomson were both students at Lockerbie Academy. They took identical Standard grades and got straight 1s, they sat identical Highers and got straight As - and last week they got identical Higher A passes in business management and Advanced Higher As in accounting and finance. (At Advanced Higher art only Laura got an A, Lynne a B.) Lynne was the school dux last year and Laura was runner-up. Now they both plan to study accounting - at the same university, of course. And they both passed their driving test on the same day.
