Love was in the air at Pride as not one but two police officers popped the question to their other halves.

Both Met policemen had their marriage proposals accepted, after asking their partners in front of crowds gathered for the gay pride parade in London.

The happy couples were snapped by photographers as thousands celebrated the annual event in the capital.

The officers were among around 80 to take part in the march, representing the Met.

One couple is made up of two of the force's officers, while another officer stopped off along the parade route to propose to his civilian boyfriend who had been standing among the spectators along the route.

The Met's LGBT group tweeted pictures of the romantic scenes writing: "He said yes" and "He said yes too".

The images, featuring smiling onlookers, have each been retweeted more than 1,000 times.
