We met at darts match – and now we've hit our treble 20!
A couple who met at a darts match in a pub have just celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary.
Jean and Cyril Vass, from Thurmaston, met at the Red Cow pub in Leicester Forest East, and courted for two years before marrying in 1952.

Gail, 59, from Syston, said: "They honeymooned in Torquay, and they still go to Torquay every year."

Cyril, 84, had many jobs throughout his working life, including a stint as a lorry driver and a pest control officer. He also had a small pig farm in Beaumanor Road, Belgrave.
A hosiery factory worker for most of her life, Jean, 82, also ran The Great Northern Inn, in Victoria Road East, Humberstone, with her husband.
"I don't think they have a secret to their long marriage – they just sort of get on with things, " said Gail. "They like the same things in life, and still like to go out and socialise together."
