A family born and bred in Abbots Langley were reunited for the first time in over 20 years.

Barbara Reid, 65, organised a family reunion at the Royal Oak in Abbots Langley.

Mrs Reid's father was one of nine children, who grew up in Marlin Square.

Her grandfather had bought his children homes - also in Marlin Square, and the family and cousins all grew up together in the 1950s.

Mrs Reid, who now lives in Dorset, said: "It was great to see everyone, all the cousins - some had even come from as far as California to join us.

"It's all changed, Marlin Square is so much busier with many cars. We hardly had any cars - I think my granddad was actually the first person to buy a car in Abbots Langley."

The reunion took place on Sunday, November 1.
