Fainting by numbers

This week's happiest in-house legal team has to be BSkyB. Well, it will be just so long as the team of legal secretaries there starts spreading the wealth.

A syndicate of BSkyB legal secretaries was last week laughing all the way to the bank after winning just over half a million pounds on the Lotto. The lucky syndicate of 10 had all six numbers drawn on Saturday 10 May. Surprisingly, this was only the syndicate's sixth attempt at the draw. Less surprisingly, the secretaries were given the afternoon off to celebrate, although if Tulkinghorn had shared such good fortune the diary page might just be taking a rather longer break.
