Bus stop, wet day, she's there, I say...

A COUPLE have been handed a lasting memento of the place they fell in love - a council bus stop.

Aly Hussien, 41, admired future wife Michala, 40, each day as she waited for a bus at the stop in Gloucester Road, Bristol.

He plucked up the courage to say hello and the pair chatted daily, before Mr Hussien asked her out.

The couple married three years ago and always remember the spot where they fell in love.

Their friend, Tat Mersy, contacted Bristol City Council after hearing the bus stop, Zetland Road Junction, was to be replaced.

And the council agreed to her request for a part of the stop to be handed over to the couple and representatives from the council and bus shelter supplier Clear Channel UK presented them with the bus stop flag and seat.

"Every day I used to see her at the same time in the same place and really wanted to get to know her so one day I took the opportunity to say hello," Mr Hussien said.

"Our daily chats led to me asking her out properly. We've now been married for three years but I'll never forget how we met and it's wonderful that we can keep a little bit of our history forever."

Deputy mayor Geoffrey Gallop, who handed the couple part of the shelter, said he was delighted and-Mark Webb, of Clear Channel UK, added: "We're delighted."
