Strangers on a train mark anniversary as couple

Have your say

TWO young lovers have been presented with tickets for a romantic getaway to Paris to mark the first anniversary of their chance meeting on a train.

Joe Clarke, 25, a Manchester University student from Hunters Bar, Sheffield, met Katy Moulton, 22, from Manchester and a Sheffield University law student at the time, when they ended up sat next to each other on board a CrossCountry train last November.

The couple hit it off immediately and agreed to meet up again.

A year later, Joe and Katy are still going strong and decided to contact CrossCountry to thank them for bringing them together.

The train firm responded by offering first-class tickets from Sheffield to London and champagne to help with their anniversary getaway.

Joe said: “It was a lovely gesture.”
