Breaking News ! Tragedy has struck for Hexham MP Guy Opperman after his baby twin boys have died just after arriving into the world. He and wife Flora were looking forward to having their babies, Teddy and Rafe, but they died in the intensive care unit, not long after being born. Conservative MP Mr Opperman has bravely told his story in a series of heart wrenching tweets as he tries to come to terms with his loss. He wrote: “Sadly, just over a week ago we lost our twin boys. “Teddy came and went from this world quickly and quietly. He passed peacefully. Our younger twin, Rafe, was not born until Tuesday 23, but died later that day in NeoNatal ICU. “Baby loss, and coping with grief, is very hard.” He added: “Nothing we could do. Just a horrible tragedy. We emerged from hospital a week ago shell shocked. We have taken some time out to recover. I am back at work part time, but bear with me. We will come through this, but will always miss our boys. Cards are fine, but pls no flowers.” Guy Opperman on his wedding day (Image: Handout) Mr Opperman, who was rushed to hospital after collapsing at the House of Commons in 2011 from an undiagnosed brain tumour, was elected as MP for Hexham in 2010. He said Rafe died in his mother’s arms and told how he treasured the short time he had with his boys. On Twitter the 55-year-old said: “The loss of our younger twin Rafe was particularly acute. He lived and died within a long day. But we treasure our time with him in Neonatal ICU. We were able to tell him of all our hopes and dreams for him, and our family; but he could not make it and died in Flora’s arms.

. We are engaging with Sands, who help families coping with the grief of baby loss. We will try and establish a small fund to support research that will prevent other families experiencing the same pain.” Read More Related Articles Coronavirus: The tragic number of 'young and healthy' people who died from Covid-19 Read More Related Articles How friends will honour a selfless Gateshead philanthropist killed in tragic accident at 35 Mr Opperman, who married Flora in June 2017, has taken comfort in a quote of a Buddhist concept of the nature of life and death. He put on his Twitter page the Chidi’s Wave In The Ocean quote. It says: “Picture a wave. In the ocean. You can see it, measure it, its height, the way the sunlight refracts when it passes through. And it’s there. And you can see it, you know what it is. It’s a wave. “And then it crashes in the shore and it’s gone. But the water is still there. The wave was just a different way for the water to be, for a little while. You know it’s one conception of death for Buddhists: the wave returns to the ocean, where it came from and where it’s supposed to be.” He said: “The Wave quote is a good description of this awful process, and an acceptance of life passing. You never regret trying to have children. "Sometimes baby loss happens. We will never forget our boys. They will be with us always. Just sadly only in their spirit and their memory.”
