Captured on camera: surprise proposal at pregnancy scan

Staff at a midwifery and scanning clinic got involved in a plot to surprise a pregnant mum-to-be with a marriage proposal.

The baby's father asked staff to write the question on the screen as they showed a picture of the baby, and he whipped out a ring. Thankfully, she said 'yes'.

It was captured on camera by staff at the clinic which has branches in both Leamington Spa and Hinckley. It has had nearly 40,000 views.

Worcestershire's brand new Oncology Centre will be officially opened by Princess Anne today.

The £25 million centre means 95% of radiotherapy will be delivered within the county - a huge improvement for patients that used to have to travel miles for treatment.

The princess will also visit the hospital's new Meadow Birth Centre.

We are honoured that HRH The Princess Royal has chosen to visit the Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

The new Oncology Centre is a major development for patients in Worcestershire whilst the birth centre will give mums-to-be the choice of having their baby in a unit run by midwives.
