Olympic torch relay: Torchbearer proposes en route


There was a romantic interlude on the Olympic Torch Relay on Monday when torchbearer, David State, stopped en route to propose to his girlfriend.

The 25-year-old British Red Cross volunteer, who is also a special police constable, got down on one knee during the leg between Middlesbrough and Hull.

And she said yes.

This footage was taken from the live torch relay vehicle
