A Mother-of-two has held her wedding ceremony with a tree and now plans to change her surname to reflect her new marital status. The 34-year-old bride identified as Kate Cunningham, decided to ‘marry’ the elder tree in Litherland’s Rimrose Valley Park as a move to raise awareness about a campaign opposing the construction of a new bypass. Kate from Melling, told the Liverpool Echo that she had a hen do the night before and now plans to change her name to Kate Rose Elder by deed poll. Kate’s family and friends looked on as the bizarre wedding ceremony was held at a park in merseyside. Kate told the Echo: “My boyfriend is very supportive of my decision. “He’s even helped make props for the ceremony. “My oldest son was initially embarrassed when I told him I was going to do it, but now he has decided to come to the ceremony. It means a lot to him to be there. “My dad has been very supportive. He’s been out in his van helping to organise everything for the big day.”

According to an authoritative source at the airport who pleaded anonymity, the incident occurred at about 5 a.m. on Saturday.
He said that the aircraft, a Boeing 744 with registration number 5N/DBK, developed a technical fault which resulted in its forced landing.
The source said that the development caused damage to one of the four engines of the aircraft.
He said part of the tarmac and facilities at the airport were also damaged by the aircraft as a result of the accident.
The source told newsmen that the passengers were rushed out of the plane after it halted off the runway.

“Nobody died, but I have never seen this type of thing in my life, only God saved them from a terrible disaster.
“The fire that would have followed would have spread to all parts of the airport because we don’t have fire fighting vehicles in this airport,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that officials of the Accident Investigation Bureau from Lagos have inspected the partly damaged aircraft, after which they went into a closed-door meeting.
Hajiya Hassana Isah, Public Relations Officer of the state Pilgrims Welfare Board, confirmed the incident to journalists, but did not give details.
Isah assured that the development would not affect the return journey of the over 2, 000 pilgrims from the state still in Saudi Arabia.
NAN reports that the airport security prevented newsmen from gaining access to the tarmac for close inspection of the damaged aircraft.
