Siblings reunited after 67 years

A brother and sister were reunited after 67 years when he moved into the same tiny village as his niece. Jack Allen, 67, struck up a friendship with the local shopkeeper, unaware that she was his sister's daughter. For three years they got to know each other before a chance remark revealed they were related.

Mr Allen, who was adopted as a young boy, had a further shock when he found out he had nine other siblings. He recently met up with sister Pat Collins, 75, and said he was looking forward to getting to know the rest of his long-lost family. He said: "This is surreal. There was me thinking I was an only child and here I am with my sister - and there are another eight siblings."
