Last time we learned that Florence and Jack Dinnis took in Ernie and George, Florence’s nephews. This wasn’t the end of their kindness, they also took in the next generation – George’s sons Brian and Robert.

The family came together in the 1950s when they were abandoned by their mother and their father, George Heard couldn’t take them in as flats in London wouldn’t allow children.
