Siblings separated for first time in over 80 years

A brother and sister who lived together for more than 80 years, and who've spent a life-time together, are now being forced to live separately because social services put them in different care homes.

June Johnson who's 86, and her younger brother Jack who's 84 , were moved into different homes after doctors said they were too ill to stay in their own home in Stockport. And that's despite their GP saying they should stay together for the sake of their health.

The siblings are now living four miles apart on opposite sides of their hometown. They've no idea when, or if, they'll live together again
