Four-year-old boy hugs gran for first time in five months

Charlie Powell has been reunited with his grandmother after lockdown restrictions eased in Scotland.

A four-year-old boy and his gran finally hugged each other again after five months apart in lockdown.

Charlie Powell, from Greenock, suddenly stopped visiting his grandmother, Roberta Brown, as strict coronavirus restrictions were implemented in Scotland.

Charlie’s dad, David Powell, told STV News: “I didn’t tell Charlie he was going to his grans until the morning, because I knew how excited he would be.

“They video called a few times a day while in lockdown but it wasn’t the same.”

David decided to film their reunion and post the heartwarming moment on social media.

“I thought it would be a good moment to capture and you could see how much it meant to both of them to be reunited.”
