Long lost lovers: We married six decades after first meeting

Watch as a husband reads a love letter to his wife, following their marriage which came 65 years after they were first engaged.

A family row meant Davy Moakes, 86, and Helen Andre, 82, were forced to call of their engagement in 1951.

They finally married in November 2016.

“We will spend our future together very much in love and although we always regret the circumstances that kept us apart in 1956, we are happy together forever,” said Davy.

This clip is part of BBC Radio 5 live's Love Season, broadcast throughout February.
