Mr Rix said: ‘Katie looked out of the window of the restaurant and there were my friends from the lifeboat. They were holding a banner saying Katie will you marry me?

‘When she looked round I was down on one knee asking her to marry me.’

The Looe spokesman added: ‘Unbeknown to his girlfriend, Katie Fisher, he had arranged for his crewmates to deliver his marriage proposal by lifeboat.

‘After getting down on one knee to propose, Katie and Aaron went down onto the quay to be greeted by cheers from their families and our crew. A birthday to remember.

‘Happy birthday Aaron and congratulations to you both from all at Looe Lifeboat Station.’
