The famous Bude Tunnel has just turned even more magical... after a proposal under the Christmas lights.

The landmark at the town's Sainsbury's went viral after TripAdvisor reviews started pouring in.

And last week the top tourist attraction was illuminated with 30 thousand LED lights for the festive period.

Now a young woman from Launceston has popped the question to her girlfriend - inside the lit-up tunnel.

Celina Stone got down on one knee on Wednesday night and asked Jade Euden to marry her.

"At first we weren’t going to go anywhere as I wasn’t feeling great but it was Celina’s last day off from the week so we went out for some chips and then went to see the tunnel with our beagles Digby and Hugo.

"It was really cold so I thought we were walking back up through the tunnel and then going home but then as we got half way Celina got down on one knee.

"I was shocked, at first I thought she was joking as we’re not overly serious about much.

"After she proposed Steve from the Sainsbury’s store brought out some Prosecco and we had photos taken and spoke to The Bude Tunnel people about why Celina picked there to propose.

"It’s just sunk in today so I’m sure we’ll start making plans soon."

"It was lovely, definitely didn’t expect all that at all."

The lights will stay at the Bude tunnel until Sunday.

“We’ve been overwhelmed with the positive response for the 'Bude Tunnel' and we’re delighted to be working with the community to give it all we’ve got and bring the people of Bude something magical this Christmas.

"It’ll be a shopping trip they’ll never forget.”

Stephen Gent, Store Manager at Sainsbury's Bude
