Marie was visiting Jack’s grave in Waterlooville in Hampshire on Saturday when she encountered her feathered friend.

She said: “I got to the cemetery and was sitting in the car feeling quite down.”

“I said: “Come on Jack, show mummy a sign that you are there”.

“I then went and sat by him at his grave and the robin came down and landed on my leg. I took a picture and it flew off but then came back.

“It then landed on my hand I filmed it. It was all very moving.

“The video has been viewed millions of times and I have had thousands of messages from people about what it symbolises and from parents who have lost children.”
