This is the incredible moment a man who was given up for adoption as a baby discovered he has a brother who has been living just a mile away for 50 years.

Steve Belshaw was hours old when his 17-year-old mother placed a newspaper advert putting him up for adoption.

His biological parent Frances Unsworth made the life-changing decision after her partner was killed in accident. She died in 2004 without ever meeting her son.

On a quest to find out more about his family heritage, Mr Belshaw was devastated to learn his mother’s fate.

But in a bittersweet discovery, he found out he had a brother – who remarkably had been living just a stone’s throw away from his home in Blackpool, Lancashire.

The revelation came about after he appeared on ITV’s Long Lost Family.

The programme brought the pair together in a pub where for the first time, Mr Belshaw met his half-brother Rob Hall.

In an emotional reunion, airing on ITV later this month, the brothers embraced before talking face to face for the first time.
