Two British women who have known each other 30 years were stunned to discover they are sisters.
Deborah Day was adopted when she was two months old — separating her from big sister Marilyn Morris.
They met again as teenagers working in a supermarket and became friends — but had no idea they were related.
They lost touch again but the truth finally came to light when their oldest sister Sally Griffiths launched a search for her lost family.
At a reunion Deborah, 44, and Marilyn, 45, were shocked to discover they were more than friends.
They live within a mile of each other in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, and even send their children to the same school.
“When we worked together we realized we were similar,” Day said. “But I never imagined Marilyn was my sister. We’ve got years of catching up to do and we’re enjoying every minute.”
Marilyn added: “Debbie and I look so alike. It’s wonderful because we have such a great family now. All our children are friends.”
