Twins reunited for the first time after almost 80 years

Twins who were separated as babies in Aldershot back in 1936 have been reunited for the first time.

Ann Hunt, who lives in Hampshire, had no idea she had a sibling at all until last year.

She has now met her twin Elizabeth Hamel, who lives in the US, for the first time since they were babies - setting a new world record.

Peter Bowes was in California to see the moment when they were brought together.
