London police have revealed that the couple whose candle-lit marriage proposal was caught on a helicopter night vision camera from the sky are to marry.
The words ‘will you marry me’ were written in flames as the Metropolitan Police’s helicopter flew over a north-west London's Gladstone Park near midnight on Saturday.
Remarkably, even though it was pitch black, the helicopter’s heat sensitive camera captured the author of the message down on one knee - apparently proposing to his partner.

The MPSinthesky Twitter account, for MPS Helicopters, tweeted this photo from their heat-sensitive camera of the romantic moment that shows the message burning in the darkness.
The MPSinthesky Twitter account tweeted: ‘We think we have just seen the most romantic guy in north London.’
After an appeal for internet users to help them identify the couple, so that they could pass on the photographs of their proposal to the bride and groom-to-be, police said today that the bride-to-be had accepted as her boyfriend popped the question.
They tweeted: ‘Who were the lucky couple in Gladstone Park just before midnight ? #willyoumarryme?
‘Does anyone know who the newly engaged couple are as we have great photos to share with them?’
Images of the pair were shared with the account’s 95,500 followers in a bid to track them down.
Officers believe the message had been written using lit candles to stand out against the night sky.
