Watch the moment Cornwall surfer Pete Abell popped the question to girlfriend Angie de Burgh while surfing the Severn Bore.

The couple who have been together for three years managed to catch the same wave allowing 32 year old Pete to reach into his wetsuit and retrieve the ring and luckily for him Angie said yes.

Despite showing excellent balance, Pete admitted he had used a fake ring while out on the water in case anything went wrong but after surfing a further mile downstream they came ashore to celebrate with their family.
