Love bench

You can only sit here if you're getting hitched!

A "Love Bench" has been installed at Newbury Racecourse, in time for a flurry of marriage proposals expected on Valentines Day.

A spokesman for the racecourse said it was "the perfect place to pop the question" on what they are expecting will be one of their busiest days, dubbed "Super Saturday".

Harriet Rochester, from Newbury Racecourse, said "This is a unique concept which we hope will provide a truly memorable and romantic experience for many couples."

The "white bench" will be placed with a view of the finishing straight, so huge racing fans will be able to pop the question, as well as see if their horse comes in!
