Leap year proposal: Woman pops question in Manchester shark tank

A woman who has a fear of sharks has proposed to her partner while swimming with them at the Sea Life Centre in Greater Manchester.

Rachel Ottery said she felt she could overcome her fear of the sea creatures if Sean could overcome his fear of marriage by asking him to marry her on 29 February on a leap year.

Luckily, as BBC North West Tonight's Stuart Flinders was there filming, he said 'yes'.
