At around 2325hrs on Saturday, 23 August, officers in an MPS helicopter heading towards routine duties at Heathrow Airport came across a marriage proposal in Gladstone Park, Dollis Hill.

The words 'Will you marry me?' were spelled out on the ground with what were believed to be candles.

The officers continued their flight westwards without establishing the identity of those involved or indeed the answer to the proposal.

However, images of the proposal were shared with 95,500 followers of the Air Support Unit via Twitter on @mpsinthesky
