Halstead: Fireman's burning proposal
9:00am Saturday 19th January 2013 in News
Love was burning brightly when a firefighter got up a ladder to propose to his fiancee.
Gareth Wilson roped in his colleagues at Halstead Fire Station to drive two engines to the home he shares with Lisa Welham, a teaching assistant at Honywood Community Science School in Coggeshall.
He then used a ladder to climb up to the bedroom window, where he pulled an engagement ring out of his pocket and dropped the visor of his helmet, which had the words Marry Me written across it.
