That's Gas! Romantic farmer proposes to lucky girlfriend via the medium of sheep... as you do

This has to be a first...

People are always trying to be innovative when proposing to their partners, but this one is right up there as one of the most bizarre, but brilliant ways of asking someone to marry you.

Henry Brown is a sheep farmer from East Sussex and he proposed to his girlfriend Emily Walker in a very original way. He took five sheep and painted one of the following five words on to each one "Emily, will ewe marry me?" to complete a puntastic wedding proposal.

The five sheep obviously scattered around the field so it was up to Emily to put the clues together and realise what was happening. In fairness, you didn't need to be Hercule Poirot to work it out, but we are delighted to hear that she accepted.
