A Banbury family is celebrating three generations sharing the same birthday. Little Leo Kerr was born on August 2 and at 12-days-old remains blissfully unaware that his mother Kirsty Smith, her twin brother Dean Smith and his late grandfather Michael Smith share his birthday.

The family’s only regret is they did not put a bet on the remarkable trio of birthdays.

Kirsty, now 20, said: “Everyone seems to think it’s quite amazing. My mum was saying it would be nice to have him on my birthday. I thought it wouldn’t happen but it did!”
