Twins live iden­ti­cal lives for 90 years

Daily Express - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Mark Reynolds

THESE twin sis­ters have led iden­ti­cal lives for 90 years – work­ing in the same fac­tory, go­ing on hol­i­day to­gether and even shar­ing a wed­ding.

Iden­ti­cal twins Mau­reen New­ton and Gwen Jones were walked down the aisle by their proud fa­ther Alb Sadler, a book­maker, who held one on each arm in Septem­ber 1950.

Mau­reen’s hus­band John sadly died aged 65 but Gwen’s hus­band Mel is still go­ing strong at 90.

The sis­ters live just seven miles apart in New­port, Gwent, and re­cently cel­e­brated their 90th birth­days to­gether – along­side their seven grand­chil­dren and eight great grand­chil­dren.

Gwen said: “In all those years we have never fallen out once.”
