It wasn’t business as usual for passengers and station assistants at Wakefield Westgate train station, West Yorkshire as a romantic soldier popped the question on his arrival from a 5 month tour to Afghanistan.
Martin Rogers got off the train, threw his military gear to the floor and actually got down on one knee and proposed to girlfriend Zoe right there on the platform much to the delight and surprise of passengers and passers by.
You don’t need us to tell you she said yes of course.
The tear jerking moment was witnessed by Zoe’s son who was obviously bemused by what was going on.
East coast Customer Service Assistant Neal Mcnulty told the Daily Mail: ‘It was the best thing I’ve ever seen on the station – a real tear-jerker.
‘The little boy was shouting “Daddy, Daddy” as Martin stepped from the train. He gave the little lad a big cuddle, then got down on one knee and proposed.’
