A couple who bonded over a Burger King Whopper nine years ago have tied the knot, sporting Burger King crowns for their big day.
Emily Garland and Jamie Dunsmuir, from Guildford, met at the town’s Burger King branch in 2013 and now have two children. When Burger King heard of their romance, it provided the cardboard crowns as a reminder of where their story began.

A gang of clowns have been driving around at night with “creepy music” blaring from a speaker atop a van.
Four costumed pranksters tailed a man, 30, who ran to get away in Laindon, Essex. And a mum said the music scared her children.

More than eight police cars were needed to help round up a herd of a dozen cows that went on the run. The group of cows was spotted in the town of Chipping Sodbury, Gloucestershire.
Local Steve Burden was about to walk his dog when he saw blue lights. He said: “One of the police cars reversed about 100 metres. I said, ‘Mate what’s going on?!’ I was thinking someone was being hunted, or a house had been burgled, but he shouted back ‘some cows are on the loose’.
“I walked towards the underpass and the police cars were swarming, then all of a sudden about 12 or so cows appeared and went across the road towards the pub and the kebab shop.”
