LAWYERS Beverley Jenkinson, Jonathan Bridge and Des Draper are the toast of their office.

The three, who work for solicitors Farleys, have each been awarded a Diploma in Personal Injury Litigation by the Metropolitan University of Manchester.

The course covered areas including factory accidents, repetitive strain injuries and medical negligence.

Jonathan and Des, based at the firm's Blackburn office and Beverley, who works from the Accrington office, all passed the diploma with credit.

Des, who has been with the firm for the past eight years, has also recently been made a partner specialising in personal injury claims.
