Woman's shock at Bestival proposal

A woman suffered a shock when her boyfriend proposed to her in a message shown on the screen of Bestival's main stage.

Viv Craske pre-recorded the proposal to be shown to his partner Jenny Engvall at the conclusion of the Bat For Lashes set at the festival on the Isle of Wight. Miss Engvall, who bakes cakes for a living, said yes.

Mr Craske, 38, said: "I wanted to do something special for the proposal. We came to Bestival a couple of years ago and saw Jenny playing with a friend's son and I realised I wanted to have children with her and we now have a son, Jasper who is 20 months.

"As we were coming back to Bestival I felt this was the place to propose as this is the place where we first became a family. I have been nervous all weekend waiting for this. I chose this moment because it was before Sigur Ros who is our favourite band."

Miss Engvall said: "It's fantastic, I am completely surprised, just shocked."
