Man finds parents 33 years after he was abandoned at Gatwick


A man who was abandoned as a baby at Gatwick Airport more than 30 years ago has tracked down his parents.

Steve Hydes was left in the airport’s south terminal in 1986 when he was just 10 days old and was found wrapped in a blanket in the women’s toilets.

Mr Hydes has spent 15 years trying trace his family and now, after genealogists tested DNA samples, has discovered that his mother passed away but his father is still alive.

After making contact with his father, Mr Hydes found he had siblings who did not know he existed.
