Jumping the bus queue

Some people will do anything to get into The Lawyer. Larissa Lowe, a licensing solicitor at Horsey Lightly Fynn, was so keen to see her name in print that she not only travelled to Belgium (a stupendous effort in anyone’s book), she also jumped over the equivalent height of a double-decker bus – some 3.58m.

Lowe was so shameless in her publicity-seeking efforts that she apparently didn’t even bother doing the jump for charity. She did, however, become the world record holder in the W40 pole vault class – whatever that is.
