In video: Police officer accepts marriage proposal on Pride route

The 23-year-old British Transport Police officer delighted crowds when she said yes.

The girlfriend of a police officer acted on this year’s Pride in London motto when she proposed along the parade route.

In keeping with the #LoveHappensHere hashtag, the woman got down on one knee to ask her British Transport Police (BTP) officer partner for her hand in marriage.

The 23-year-old officer, dressed in uniform and waving a rainbow flag, nodded and put the ring on before hugging her fiancee in front of a jubilant crowd.

A video of the moment the officer, originally from Peterborough, became engaged was posted online and has been liked hundreds of times.

The pair, who BTP said did not wish to be named, have been in a relationship for five years and live together in London.
