Readyhedge nursery manager Liam Ireland has made an unusual proposal to his girlfriend - by taking her up in a helicopter and spelling out 'will you marry me' in his company's product.

Ireland, from Worcestershire, made the 2m letters letters from buxus.

He said: "I couldn't get down on one knee because I was strapped into the helicopter but I hope I was forgiven. I just thought what other way to do it than spell it out in box hedging and fly over. It's a little bit different really. I'm just really pleased with how it all worked out, it was perfect."

As a ruse to get his girlfriend into the helicopter, he said his boss Simon Williamson, had arranged for them to fly over Readyhedge to take some aerial photos.
