A woman from Barnet has returned home after 70 years and it turns out it was all a fuss about nothing.

Doris Parker left her house to go shopping for a packet of biscuits and a bar of soap on the morning of July 6th 1947 however before reaching the shops

Doris recalls that an extraordinary incident took place.

As she was walking round a street corner she bumped into her mothers twin sister - June. The two ladies clashed heads and fell to the floor with an almighty thud.

A rare surviving witness to the incident, Alfie Tucker (now well over 100) recalls "they were both moving at a fair rate of knots. I wanted to go over an elp but the ladies were up on their feet, laughing it off in no time. People were made of the right stuff back in those days!"

Doris' mind quickly started to play games with her and she thought that her mums twin sister was actually her mum. The plot thickened further as following Junes head injuries she forgot she had a twin sister. The two of them innocently finished their shopping and went home together to Junes house - thinking nothing more of it.

Doris has explained that in the years that followed the incident she feels she missed many opportunities to go back to the right home "well of course there was the odd time that id question things - i saw posters around Barnet with my face and the word missing below it but i was always worried that it was the old bill after me!".

Doris finally worked out the truth one day when she saw a picture of her and her real mum in the barnet museum. "It brought it all back to me" she recalls. Unfortunately Doris' real mum is now in a nursing home and has forgotten who Doris is.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
