Couple James Craig and Robert Pickering liked a home so much they decided to get engaged outside it.

The special moment took place on Valentine’s Day outside their brand new property at The Crossings in Barnsley. James said: “As soon as we visited our new home, we were so overwhelmed that it inspired us to get engaged.” Anne Bagshaw, sales and marketing director for housebuilder Taylor Wimpey, said: “We’re thrilled to have helped James and Robert take their first step onto the property ladder.”
