A Wilmington couple have celebrated their platinum wedding anniversary.

Ronald and Joyce Hutton, who have lived in the village for 36 years, were joined by their family, including two children Robert and Roger, five grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren, on Easter Sunday to mark 70 years of marriage.

The celebration took place at the Compass Inn, Tormarton, South Gloucestershire.

The couple grew up in Bristol, living in the city for the majority of their working lives before moving to Wilmington.

Ronald and Joyce met on August 7, 1942, after being introduced by a mutual friend. They later went on their first date to see the film The Bugle Sounds at the local cinema.
