Boston widower places £1,000 love advert

A widower has spent almost £1,000 on a half-page advert in his local paper after his wife told him to find a new companion before she died.

Peter Wilson, from Boston in Lincolnshire, lost his wife of 23 years to cancer in April.

He said the pair both agreed during a holiday to find a new partner if something should happen to either one of them.

Mr Wilson, 60, said the ad was what his late wife would have wanted.
