WATCH: War veteran recounts reuniting with former comrade at West Country care home

71 years ago they fought together as part of the Warsaw uprising and now, quite by chance, they find themselves living in adjacent bungalows.

In August 1944 Andrew Borowiec and Ted Stopczynski were part of the Polish Resistance trying to free the city from German occupation.

The pair have now find themselves reunited at Ilford Park, a residential care home for former members of the Polish Forces.

Mr Borowiec says they are fortunate to have found each other.

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."
