In what's being described as an "enormous coincidence," two Polish resistance fighters have been re-united at a West Country care home.

Andrew Borowiec and Ted Stopczynski fought side-by-side as teenagers in the second World War.

The pair are now neighbours at Ilford Park near Newton Abbot.

"It's wonderful that both of us are here obviously prosperous and that we survived all that and it's fortunately very far behind us."
