Now a grown woman. Kiran Sheikh was two hours old when she was abandoned at a call box in Forest Gate, east London on April 30, 1994.

She was found by Joe Campbell who had gone to make a call in the phone booth.

Her biological mother, who was trapped in a violent relationship, gave birth on the floor in her bathroom, dumped the child then called Samaritans, urging them to come quickly for the baby.

Nigerian man who found her, Joe Campbell, now 52, shared how he sent gifts and birthday cards for the first five years of Sheikh’s life before being instructed by social services to cut ties.

She is overjoyed to be reunited with him. Sheikh, who is a mother to a two-year-old, told the newspaper: "He says anyone would have done what he did, but they wouldn’t. It’s so amazing to have been reunited with him. He’s my hero. We lived down the road from each other for years, we must have passed each other, I can’t believe we were so close."
