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."

Nicola Meakin proposed to Gareth Gibson last night by arranging a huge projection on the side of Shaddonmill in Carlisle.

As it was the 29th she was able to ask him, and he said YES.

She lured him there by telling him she had broken down and asked if he could come and rescue her.Initially he was shy of the cameras but eventually he got out of his van and celebrated with a glass of bubbly with his new fiancee.
