Couple given bus stop love memento
Tuesday 01 October 2013
A couple have been handed a lasting memento of the place they fell in love eight years ago – a bus stop in Bristol.
Aly Hussein, now aged 41, admired Michala, now 40, each day as she waited for a bus home at the stop in Gloucester Road. He eventually plucked up the courage to say hello and the pair chatted daily, before Mr Hussein asked her out. The couple married three years ago.
Their friend, Tat Mersy, contacted Bristol City Council after hearing that the bus stop, Zetland Road Junction, was to be replaced.
The council agreed to her request for the bus stop flag and seat to be handed over to the couple because of its significance to them.
