Rebecca Powers from Stevenage got the shock of her life when she returned from the loo on what she thought was an ordinary afternoon out at Cinnabar in Stevenage Old Town on Sunday.

The 40-year-old mum of two was greeted by family and – most importantly – her man Brad Evan-Hart, 32, who got down on one knee and proposed to her.

Brad chose the popular venue because it is where the couple first got together two years ago. Brad said he wanted to do the deed before it closed temporarily for refurbishment on Monday.

Rebecca said she knew that engagement was on the cards but didn’t know it would happen on Sunday.

She said: “I absolutely adore him and can’t wait to be his wife.”
