Sisters with a Hemel Hempstead connection are considered to be the world’s longest-separated twins after being reunited for the first time since their birth in 1936.

Ann Hunt and Liz Hamel, 78, have even made it into the Guinness Book of World Records following the emotional meeting, after which they were analysed as part of a study at the Twin Centre in California.
