Miracle mum Melanie Grimsley who survived a horrific car fire which claimed the life of her older sister 32 years ago has opened her heart about finding love a second time around after the break-up of her first marriage to her teenage sweetheart.

Thirty-four-year-old Melanie, from Kesh in Co Fermanagh, says she couldn't be happier after tying the knot with health service professional Ray Maxwell, who she met on a Christian dating site three years ago.

Melanie and her first husband, Brian Higgins, who have two sons together, were divorced in 2013, five years after they were married in Enniskillen.
