Pandemic Thwarts British Couple's Plan To Relive Paris Honeymoon

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Nick and Bernie Charman always had Paris. Last year, they meant to go back and relive their honeymoon. But the pandemic forced a change in plans. And instead, Nick brought France to their front yard in Hastings, England. He built a 22-foot tall Eiffel Tower that lights up like the real thing. Nick told The Sun tabloid that his wife and neighbors love it. But the town council said it's a code violation and ordered him to take it down. But he and Bernie are keeping their Parisian dream alive. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
