Siblings reunited after 75 years


A brother and a sister who were parted as toddlers in 1938 have been reunited.

An amateur genealogist helped track down John Stubbs, 77, after the family of Rose Burleigh, 78, discovered through some family history research that she had a brother.

The siblings met up during an emotional reunion at BBC South's office in Southampton on Monday after 75 years apart.
