Police passing by help mother at roadside birth


Two police community support officers helped deliver a baby on the side of a Norfolk road.

Inga Munkova had been diverted from King's Lynn Hospital, just five minutes from her home, to Peterborough because there was no room in the delivery suite.

She got as far as Wisbech when she realised she was not going to make it.

Her husband then flagged down Cambridgeshire PCSO Donna Thompson - who has four children of her own - and her colleague Sam Dyer.

They safely delivered baby Viktorija in the back seat of the car.
