Police spot proposal from the sky

A police helicopter crew captured on camera the moment a man got down on bended knee surrounded by the illuminated message: "Will you marry me?"
The words "Will you marry me?" were spelled out on the ground in Gladstone Park, Dollis Hill, north-west London, with what were believed to have been candles.
In a stroke of luck, the crew captured the exact moment the mystery man got down on bended knee to pop his question - but whether he got the answer he was looking for remains unanswered.
The MPSinthesky Twitter account tweeted: "We think we have just seen the most romantic guy in north London."
Images of the pair were shared with the account's 95,500 followers - and prompted a series of compliments on the mystery man's efforts.
One said: "We thought it only happens in movies." Another said: "Awwww... many congrats to the couple!"
