Mick, who is from Runcorn, proposed to his girlfriend, Terri, 28, at Warrington Bank Quay station, where they fell in love seven years ago.

To celebrate their engagement Virgin Trains surprised Mick and Terri with a First Class journey to London and Afternoon Tea at Harrods.

The couple, who live in Skelmersdale, met at Warrington Bank Quay in January 2010 when

they were both travelling down south to see their families - Mick was making a journey to London, whilst Terri was travelling to Birmingham.

Mick, 37, said:

I thought I had everything when I found Terri, then we had our amazing children. Now I have the one thing I never thought I would be lucky enough to have and that is Terri as my fiancé. I’ve been blown away with Virgin Trains’ support, creativity and never-ending generosity to make my dream come true.
