Friends find out they are sisters

Two women who worked together as teenagers at a supermarket in North Somerset found out they are sisters.

Deborah Day, 44, and Marilyn Morris, 45, who had jobs at Tesco in Weston-super-Mare, also went on to send their children to the same school.

Mrs Day was adopted, while her sisters, Mrs Morris and Sally Griffiths, 46, stayed with their natural parents.

The link emerged when Mrs Griffiths traced Mrs Day. All three women now live close to each other in the resort.

Mrs Morris told BBC News: "I always used to stare at her and she must've thought I was a bit strange.

"We just used to look at each other all the time."

Mrs Day added: "She's just such a great person and I just had that feeling that she even looked like me.

"It's good news isn't it?"
