A British man flew his girlfriend all the way across the pond to New York City so he could propose to her at the fire station used in the Ghostbusters franchise.

Wearing a hard hat and safety vest, Giles Baugh dropped to one knee at Ladder 8 in Tribeca and asked Melissa Ward to marry him.

Ms Ward, who said she has learned to embrace Mr Baugh's Ghostbusters fandom, happily agreed.

The proposal took several months of planning, The New York Daily News said.

A city employee convinced the FDNY to go along with Mr Baugh's stunt so long as the proper safety precautions were taken.

The 1903 fire station is currently undergoing a 6.5 million dollar (£5.1 million) renovation.

Mr Baugh said he can recite his favourite scenes from the 1984 film verbatim.
