A romantic gesture went tragically wrong in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia on Monday, when a man fell to his death trying to affix a sign on a motorway bridge to mark the 10th anniversary of his relationship.

"According to preliminary investigations ... the 29-year-old was somehow trying to attach a banner with his name, a woman's name and the phrase '10 years' to the bridge," said police.

The man fell onto the A544 where he was crushed by "at least two vehicles" outside of Würselen near the western city of Aachen, the police added.

Doctors on the scene said it was likely the impact of the fall that killed him.
