Sisters separated as children meet in Kent

Help

Two sisters who were separated as youngsters have met for the first time after 55 years.

Jenny Lucas and Helen Edwards were unaware of each other's existence but grew up a few miles apart.

One was adopted by a well-to-do family and the other had an unhappy childhood but both said there was no envy and their different backgrounds had made them who they were.
