James from Essex proposed to his girlfriend Laura this morning - the first couple to get engaged at the Shard.

Thankfully she said yes.

"I was just so surprised. I'm speechless, I can't believe it," she said afterwards. "I'm so happy and so excited. I had no idea whatsoever, didn't have any idea."
