'I couldn't believe for a third time I was having twins!'

A mother from Renfrewshire has beaten the odds after giving birth to her third set of twins.

Karen Rodger, 41, and her husband Colin, 44, from Langbank are said to be over the moon after the girls, Rowan and Isla, arrived on Wednesday at Glasgow's Southern General Hospital.

The couple already have four boys - Lewis and Kyle who are 14 years old, and Finn and Jude who are 12 years old.

Doctors told them the chances of having three sets of twins was 500,000-1.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, Karen described her disbelief on finding out she was expecting a third set of twins, while Colin said he would be tripping over even more shoes.
