World War II veterans get married in Huddersfield

A couple from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, who met in their 80s have tied the knot.

Margaret Hind, nee Dufty, 92, and John Hind, 85, got married on Friday, five years after meeting through the charity Blind Veterans UK.

Mrs Hind said: "We thought we'd been living over the brush far too long".

The pair were both sergeants during World War II - Mr Hind in the Royal Army Service Corps, and Mrs Hind in the Auxiliary Territorial Service.

Both are partially sighted due to age-related macular degeneration and met on a five-day introduction course held by the charity in 2007.
