There's always a pint for them at the Fox and Hounds!

A man from Dumfries secretly flew 3,000 miles to propose to his girlfriend... and captured it all on camera.

Liam Gordon surprised his girlfriend Melissa in Massachusetts, when he turned up unannounced and got down on one knee.

He says more people should recording their memories:

I thought it was nice to document travels and places I've been and things I've done instead of just showing people slide shows I think it gets boring after a while."
