The groom-to-be, James McLaughlin, had planned the proposal for weeks with the help of his friends and family. He arranged for a flash mob of singers and dancers to perform a medley of songs, including Bruno Mars’ Marry You and Ed Sheeran’s Perfect, at the station’s main concourse.

He then led his unsuspecting girlfriend, Laura Devine, to the spot where the flash mob was waiting. As the music started, James joined the performers and sang along, while Laura watched in shock and delight.

The climax came when James got down on one knee and popped the question, holding a ring box in his hand. Laura said yes, and the couple embraced and kissed, as the crowd cheered and applauded.
