Seeing double: The Indian town filled with twins

A small town in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu is home to hundreds of pairs of twins, in a phenomenon that no-one has really been able to explain.

Residents of the town, some of whom come from generations of twins, say it's because they are "blessed", but doctors are looking for a scientific reason.

Meanwhile, with more than 50 pairs of twins studying at the same school, teachers are struggling to tell them apart!
