Laptops, wallets and umbrellas are usually left in the back of taxis but one taxi driver in London got a bit of a shock when something - or someone - rather more precious was left behind.

Ertan Rasit only realised there was a baby on the back seat when a new passenger opened the door and alerted him to the surprise passenger.

He explained to BBC Radio 5 live's Drive how he retraced his journey with the child on his lap to find the distraught mother.

Update 5 September 2014: The mother in this story, who does not wish to be named, says she had asked the driver to wait while she took out her bags and then went back for her child.
