A musical marriage proposal to a Berkshire woman on a packed London train has become an online sensation around the world.
Passengers on Tuesday's 19.57 London Overground service to Watford Junction had their commute interrupted by a choir singing Bill Withers' Lovely Day.
Adam King enlisted the help of his choir, the Adam Street Singers, to serenade his girlfriend, Lucy Rogers.
The 35-year-old tailor then asked Miss Rogers, 26, to marry him.
A video of the proposal shows the groom-to-be getting down on one knee before Miss Rogers bursts into tears and says yes.
Miss Rogers, who grew up in Caversham and attended Kendrick School, said: "It was amazing. When people started singing I didn't realise it was for me.
"We've been going out for a long time but I didn't realise he was going to propose."
The couple have since been in demand from TV shows all over the world after a video of the proposal, emailed to friends, became a viral hit.
The video has been viewed over 500,000 times since it went up on video-sharing site YouTube on Thursday.
"It's captured people's romantic side," said Miss Rogers.
