Their son Dave, 67, a retired police officer, said: ‘They were at home in St Austell when dad took a tumble and broke his hip.

‘He was sent to hospital in Falmouth and in the meantime mum was put into a care home in St Austell and she couldn’t go out to see him.

‘They were apart for three months.’

Roger spent three months in hospital recovering from his operation and learning to walk again.

During that time Dave could only see his dad by talking to him through a window, and he would tell him about Mrs Bulley and how she was doing.

Dave added: ‘When he was better we got him moved into the same care home as mum, then he was in the dining room in a wheelchair and they brought mum down.

‘She was overjoyed, they both were, they’ve been married for 70 years and that’s the longest they’ve been apart.

‘It was heart warming to see them back together again.’
