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.
