The daughter of a 60-year-old caretaker who got engaged to an 18-year-old former pupil at his old school has disowned her dad.
Outraged Allison Kerr said she has “nothing to do with him anymore” after Lisa Miller, 18, proposed to dad Jim Kerr while visiting the Scottish International Airshow in Ayr last Friday.
Mr Kerr was the caretaker at Ms Miller’s old school, Woodfarm High in East Renfrewshire.
Ms Kerr said: “It’s my dad and I’m 32 so imagine how me and my family feel seeing that?
“We have nothing to do with him anymore.”
Other social media users have expressed their shock at the proposal, with another former Woodfarm pupil, Darren Law, sharing a photograph of the pair getting engaged alongside the caption: “No chance. Hahaha. A girl in the year below me has got engaged to our school’s janny. Fear.”
Mr Law’s post has since attracted 2,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook and hundreds of comments.
Another social media user claimed that Mr Kerr left his wife for Ms Miller after they got together in November last year.
They apparently now live together in Thornliebank, East Renfrewshire, the Mail Online reports.
The story was first broken by local radio station West FM, who posted a video of the beach proposal.
In the video, Ms Miller can heard saying: “Jim, we’ve been going out for just under a year and I love you so much. I wouldn’t swap you for the world and, marry me?”
He then says, “Yes, definitely,” before they share a passionate kiss.
Emotional teenager Ms Miller is then seen wiping away tears before cuddling her new fiance.
A spokeswoman for East Renfrewshire Council said: “This individual no longer works at the school.
“‘He was never a member of council staff but was employed by the PFI contractor for the campus.”
East Renfrewshire Council did not respond to requests for comment about whether the relationship began before Mr Kerr stopped working at the school .
It is not clear when Mr Kerr stopping working at the school.
