A Southend couple have celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary after 60 years of marriage.

Tommy Wilson married May Wallace in Glasgow, where the couple lived at the time, on June 25 1960.

They had a son, David, and a daughter, Lynn, who moved to Southend in 2006. The couple joined Lynn in Southend shortly afterwards and have lived there since.

Tommy and May enjoyed a quiet anniversary celebration at home this year, in light of the current coronavirus restrictions.

Lynn, who owns and runs Southend’s Argyll Arms Hotel, said: ‘Sixty years is an amazing achievement. We all wish them many more years of happiness.’
