A Chesham couple that have been shielding from the coronavirus received an incredible surprise on their 75th wedding anniversary, when a 14-piece band and an opera singer serenaded them - from a safe distance.

David and Jean Lewis met during the Second World War, and were married in Durham on 18 May 1945.

Community group Chesham Help For Coronavirus came together with Age UK to prepare a surprise.

The group organised cake, cards and presents, as well as arranging a band and singer.

The band played the Perry Como song 'Till the End of Time', which was number one when the couple met in 1945.

David said: "It was a very good day, and people were so kind in bringing us presents and singing to us."

Cllr Gareth Williams, cabinet member for communities and health added: "This is a wonderful story, and I congratulate David and Jean on reaching their 75th wedding anniversary. Chesham Help for Coronavirus volunteers clearly did a fantastic job of helping to make the couple's celebration a special one. It's another reason why I'm so #ProudofBucks."
