Wedding was a grave mistake

A lovestruck undertaker entered into a sham marriage with a Chinese takeaway owner so that she could stay in Northern Ireland.

Belfast man Glen Baxter was so infatuated with 29-year-old Nicole ‘Mei' Chen that he convinced himself she would love him one day.

The deluded 27-year-old was also promised the chance to invest in a Chinese restaurant and a £3,000 loan if he wed the young Asian mum.

The pair tied the knot at Castlereagh registry office in May 2004 in a sham ceremony that was minus a wedding dress, reception and honeymoon.

After saying their vows they went their separate ways.
