'Lorry' love for Barnsley groom

GLYNN Vaines spent his last minutes as a bachelor with his second love - the cab of an articulated lorry.

Glynn was taken in the HGV cab to St Mary's Church, Worsbrough Village, for his marriage to Claire Smith.

He is managing director of Birdwell-based road haulier Colin Vaines Transport and, according to his mum Carol, is 'obsessed' with HGVs.

The cab was decorated with hearts and flowers and driven by Glynn's cousin and best man Ian Vaines.

It is not the first time a lorry cab has featured in a family love match. An HGV cab got Glynn's sister Charlotte to the church on time when she got married about seven years ago.

Glynn, 33, and Claire, 29, of Sheffield Road, Birdwell have known each other since childhood.
