Emotional Zeebrugge disaster survivors reunited live on the show

Two survivors from the Zeebrugge ferry disaster were reunited today on Good Morning Britain after 30 years.

Gillian Lashbrooke joined us on the anniversary of the ferry disaster earlier this month and spoke about a woman and young girl who she had been in the water after the ferry capsized.

Gillian, aged 16 at the time, was rescued by emergency services who she told about the woman and girl, but as she didn’t know their names and never knew what happened to them.

But a GMB viewer watching the programme on 6 March thought the young girl sounded like a member of their family, called Lisa Ladybird, and got in touch with the programme.

And today Lisa and Gillian were reunited live on the programme.
