Bereavement support for lone twins


One of the hardest things we have to face in life is a bereavement.

But imagine if you lost someone who had been with you from before you were even born?

Twins do not simply share a birthday, they share a special relationship.

The grief of a twin which has lost its sibling can be devastating for the twin left behind.

Inside Out meets Joan Woodward who has set up the Lone Twin Network - a support group for twins who have lost their sibling.

BBC Inside Out North West and West Midlands is on Monday, 24 October at 19:30 BST and nationwide on the iPlayer.
