Childhood sweethearts who were forced apart as teenagers by their parents because they were too young have finally tied to knot – in the 70s. Devoted Eileen Lockley and Warner Billington fell in love sixty years ago but her father refused permission for them to wed because of her age. The couple had to split following their two year romance and later met new partners and were each married to other people for over 50 years. But after both were widowed their romance was rekindled following a tearful reunion at a railway station – and they have now married each other in their 70s. Eileen, 78, of Newquay, Cornwall, said: “We have simply picked up where we left off. It’s like being teenage sweethearts all over again.
