A DIAMOND couple from Bromsgrove have been celebrating 60 years of marriage this week.

Fred and Esther Burford reached the milestone anniversary on Thursday.

Esther was born in Hereford, in 1937, before moving to Bromsgrove in 1953. That year she met Fred Burford, who was born in 1933, in Churchfields.

The pair married at St John's Church a year later, 1954, on March 13.

The couple have two daughters, six grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
