A WHITBY couple have celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary.
Ernie and Vera Horton marked 60 years of marriage by having a get-together with close family, including their son and daughter, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
The couple met at a club in Vera’s home city, Liverpool, while Ernie, who came from the Midlands, was serving in the Merchant Navy.
They married soon afterwards and Ernie found work at a refinery in Ellesmere Port.
In 1951 the couple moved to Whitby where they have lived together ever since.
