Student paramedic Lauren Biffen and firefighter Martin Green met while Lauren was working an overtime shift in Shepton Mallet, Somerset in June.

Martin, who had volunteered to support crews and work alongside doctors to care for Covid patients, was checking over an ambulance when they locked eyes.
The couple met at the end of June and were soon inseparable.
After celebrating their first Valentine’s Day together, they will move in next month with their two cats, Sam and Lola, and dog, Henry.
Martin said: ‘There was something very special about Lauren. I admire everyone in the NHS for the care, commitment, and support they provide.
‘Yet I knew immediately Lauren is just one in a million. We just hit it off straight away and became good friends.
‘I am doing a job I believe in and I’ve also met Lauren. I’m the lucky one.’

Lauren added: ‘[In our jobs] You can never plan anything.
‘It’s not the kind of job where you can expect to finish on time. We really don’t mind though as we’re helping people at the end of the day.
‘But it does make it difficult to plan dinner together.’
