Man forgets bride at petrol station

A groom only noticed he had left his new wife behind after two-and-a-half hours on the road

A German couple's marriage got off to a rocky start when the groom forgot his bride at a highway petrol station on the way home from their honeymoon, only noticing she was missing after hours had passed.

Police said the couple were heading home to Berlin from France when the man pulled over near the central town of Bad Hersfeld late on Thursday to fill up their van.

The woman had been sleeping in the back but got up - unbeknownst to the man - to use the toilets and he drove off before she returned.

Only after two-and-a-half hours on the road did he notice she was gone and called police, who said she was patiently waiting.
